Students will produce four major pieces of writing pertaining to each unit genre, including in-class writing exercises to scaffold their work and a first draft of their major piece to bring to writer's workshop for critique. All required materials will be scanned and available on Brightspace.


Students will be evaluated based upon attendance and participation, completion of daily writing exercises, completion of all required drafts, and the four major writing assignments. Emphasis will be placed on implementation of revision comments and growth from draft to draft.
