Today in class we finished going over the answers for the story "The Leaving." We also completed a brief review for the short story unit test, which is coming up next week and has been changed to Tuesday, October 23rd.
We began to discuss our October portfolio piece where students must write their own short story. The story must include all of the plot elements we have studied in class, great character development, and effective dialogue. Tomorrow and Monday will be full writing periods, with a chance for students to conference one on one with me.
