English 8 – Friday, February 9th

Book trailers & Indie read. Quickwrite #10:  6 Photographers 1 ManBeginnings:  read “Lead” from A Writer Teaches Writing by Donald Murray.  In WRITE CLUB groups choose your favorite beginning for the sample piece by Tom Romano.

In addition to using the feedback received or realizations made in WRITE CLUB to make positive changes to the drafts in your Dropbox, take a look at your alternate beginnings and see if any might be better than your original.  (If you fell into a predictable trap of opening with a question, second-person, or a formula intro, choose one of your new openings, for sure). 🙂

Deadlines:  Technically, draft deadlines on DRAFT#1 (indelible moment) and DRAFT#2 (critical review) have passed.  BUT. . .  if you haven’t finished and/or uploaded them, Mrs. C needs them!

Upcoming:  Photo Memoir papers!  You will need a photo of an inanimate (not-alive) object or piece of clothing from your life – one you can associate with a personal story.
