This week, we continued our creative writing unit.
I handed out your assignment sheet for the short story writing assignment (attached below). Then, we read a Ray Bradbury story, "All Summer in a Day" (located in the "resources" section of the website), that exhibited the elements you will be required to include in your story. Students completed the response questions for the short story (also attached below), and we discussed them.
After this, students began working on the prewriting step (attached below) in preparation for drafting their short stories. Please have your prewriting complete by our next class. We will be begin working on short story rough drafts this coming week.
