Finishing up our McBride Letters

We have a number of things to do and talk about today. Make sure you read through this carefully.

Goal #1: Peer Review
  • Review your partner's letter for areas of strength and areas that need improvement.
  • Work to improve areas that need it. (Work together or separately)
Goal #2: Finalize your letter
  • Response letter to McBride is due BEFORE you come to class tomorrow
  • Finish it before you come to school tomorrow.

Goal #3: Calling in your response letter:
  • You must call in your letter.
  • Use the number posted in the classroom or use the "Call Me" button on this blog. 
  • Read your letter to the voicemail.
  • Practice before you call.
  • Due by 9:00 PM Friday 1/16 for full credit
  • (This is the easiest grade to get all semester, people. Make it happen.)
Important things to know:
  • Your English journals will get graded sometime next week. Make sure they're up to date.
  • A study guide for the final can be found here. I will also give you a paper copy.
  • NaNoWriMo regrade requests will not be accepted after tomorrow.
  • Don't forget to bring us a copy of your published NaNoWriMo novel for extra credit! (You'll need to bring it before the final for it to count for this semester.)
