Get your netbook. Open your Writers Notebook in Google Docs and under today's date (which you will need to add at the TOP) write about a time you felt wronged or threatened.
When you finish your prompt check to see that you have joined Goodreads, and completed your student data form. (Lots of people still need to do these two simple things. Can you hear the exasperation in my voice? Lets get it together folks.)
I will share with you the presentation prompts for our first unit. Yes, you will be giving presentations. Yes, they will be graded.
We read another memoir. This one is an excerpt from Fist Stick Knife Gun by Geoffrey Canada. Once again I will give you the memoir as a Word document. Please make sure you SAVE it in your My Documents folder after you open it. After we read it you will be doing some annotations to the text, so you will need to keep a copy.
