WRITE:  Quickwrite #16 – “Once Upon A Time. . . ” Start your page with these words and choose one of the picture options on today’s GClassroom to inspire your writing.

STUDY:  Using a student-written example paper, let’s take a look at the cycle of claims, evidence/example, explanation and how YOU can use this technique/pattern to strengthen your research/sourced writing.
