Follow the Write Club procedures we practiced yesterday to Bless, Address, & Press for each group member’s paper. Be sure to give feedback through MSWord in the margins (not just in discussion) that looks for what’s good = ), asks readerly questions ?, and makes suggestions in the form of “what if…” or “maybe try…”
