Book Talk & Indie Read
- “Lead” from A Writer Teaches Writing by Don Murray – make a notepage (in hour 2 we did this explicitly – in other hours we made some quick annotations & students will need go back a make a quick notepage using them)
- “In the Beginning” from Crafting Authentic Voice by Tom Romano – a read aloud + vote (in GClassroom) on the best beginning as Romano experiments and tries several options for a quick piece he wrote (hour 2 students will need to do this on your own – see today’s GClassroom stream – other hours we did this in-class)
ASSIGNMENT/EXPERIMENT: Revisit at least 2 quickwrites in your notebook and try writing* 2 more beginning options for them. Do not erase your original opening, just draw arrows and write new ones below. *Use a different colored pen if you want.
DEADLINE: Writing #5 – QW or MB (the one you didn’t do last time) due in Dropbox drafts no later than end of day 10/26 (that’s one week from today)
