Welcome to my classroom. I look forward to the new year. We will be getting right down to business. Begin by filling in the following survey, you will only need to fill it in once.

For ELA we will begin narrative writing with an argumentative essay prompt. Please read the directions below.

You school writing club is creating an online magazine that is a collection of science fiction stories. The audience for your online magazine is the teachers and students at your school as well as parents and friends who can read the magazine online. Now you are going to write a narrative to include in the online magazine. For your narrative, imagine hat you are an animal living at the bottom of the ocean. In your narrative, tell what happens once you hear an explosive boom at your home. The story should be several paragraphs long. When writing your story, find ways to use information and details about the ocean floor from the sources below to improve your story. Make sure you develop your characters, the setting, and the plot. use details, and description where appropriate.

Along with the project we will be creating our own class website for hoax news. With my previous classroom I had many talented writers, artist, and actors put together the following http://missionviejogoshen.blogspot.com/ . You should look through the site for inspiration of what you can do and learn if you put your mind to it. You will want your current piece of writing be strong enough to share online!
