English 12 — Period 1 — Thursday, Feb. 22

Today: We finished our peer-review session, did a self-evaluation of our analysis responses, and wrote that and our feedback from our peers into our Feedback Logs.

I then made some general comments about the analyses, focusing on the need to focus on ideas and explaining ideas logically, using transition words to show the logical relationship between ideas, rather than organizing your writing according the chronology of the story, starting with the beginning and ending with the ending.

Students who did not complete the analysis may choose to write an analysis over the weekend (topic to be given tomorrow) or may choose to wait until after we finish our analysis unit to see if they need further practice.

Tomorrow: We will read a series of poems called Brutal Imagination by Cornelius Eady.

Homework: Read!
