Comparative Essay
8 September,2017By: Anna DeRoos
The students will spend the next week working in class on an informal writing assessment. They will write a comparative essay reflecting on how 7th grade is different from/similar to 6th grade. I will use this assessment to gain a general sense of each student's strengths, as well as areas where they might need some support with their writing. I will review each step of the writing process with the students and guide them through the pre-write, paragraph writing, revising and editing portions of their essays. There will be no homework this week unless the students fall behind on completing their in-class work. However, please encourage them to read at home for 15 to 20 minutes each night.
