  • Students reviewed the confusing parts of the FSA Informational/Explanatory Writing Rubric as part of the bellringer.
  • The teacher reviewed different plan types and the class discussed that while the plan is ungraded, it benefits the writer. It can be written in short hand, abbreviations, etc.
  • We reviewed expectations for the essay including, but not limited to: organized into paragraphs, formal tone, inclusion of information such as facts/examples from the original texts.
  • Students were given the majority of the period to write. Essays were due to the inbox at the end of class.
