Writing Overview
Writing Assignments Overview -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Students, At the beginning of each month, I will introduce a different TYPE of writing. The dates for each type are listed on the eBoard calendar. In order to help you understand each new type, I will give out a handout as a guideline for the procedure. Then we will read an example and analyze this type of writing. Together, we will brainstorm ideas, and you will organize your thoughts before writing the first draft always on loose leaf. Please only use black or blue pen, as well as including the proper heading for each draft. After your first draft, you will proofread it and revise it, using a dictionary and a thesaurus. Then you will rewrite this copy. Your THIRD DRAFT will be typed and handed in on the due date. You will have 2-3 weeks for each assignment. PLEASE SAVE YOUR FINAL COPY ON YOUR COMPUTER AS WELL! These assignments will be discussed in your writing periods. In any case, the due dates will hold because of the ample time allotted for each assignment. We will have other writing activities, but these monthly ones are major. Kindly complete each typed copy with the proper school heading and include the TYPE of writing in your title. Thank you so much!
