Quote Integration and the Start of the Novel

English I Honors students worked on their quote integration skills with topics and quotes from “The Sniper,” a story we read earlier in the year.

Students worked on developing the skills necessary to selecting good passages to quote in support of a thesis and effective integration with one’s on writing. Afterward, they had final minutes to prepare for tomorrow’s group teaching efforts with the parts of speech project they have been working on.

English 8 students began Nightjohn and looked for evidence in Sarny’s words that indicate she is a slave. We’ll be using this tomorrow to explore voice and diction, determining what those words mean and how to analyze a piece of writing in those terms.

Journalism students worked on their articles and went on walkabout with me to take a look at how easy it is to find a topic for articles.
