Pilgrim Woman1Monday, May 16: There will be no formal journals this week. However today we edited each other’s The Crucible essays.  If you were gone today, please edit your essay at home, using the PowerPoint called “5 Para Essay Edit” on this page (bearing in mind that yours is actually a 6 or more paragraph essay, so paragraph counts should be higher). Have your parent sign a note saying that you did edit your own essay for at least a half hour, and bring that to school with you to earn today’s editing participation points.

Tuesday, May 17: There will be no formal journals this week. However today we edited our own The Crucible essays.  If you were gone today, please edit your essay at home, using Thesaurus.com to improve your vocabulary, and using the notes from English Emporium on “Parenthetical Citation in a Literary Essay” (scroll down to that title and read about it before you self-edit).

Wednesday, May 18: There will be no formal journals this week. Today we went to the computer lab to type our The Crucible final drafts, making changes according to the edits we were given by our peers and through our self-editing. The final draft will be collected for a grade on Thursday, May 19.
