Yesterday I was out sick. The kids had a great report from the sub.

Today in class they continued to work on their rough drafts of their myths. If the student finished I asked them to peer edit another student that had also finished. This first peer edit was very basic–does the student have a myth with a beginning, middle, and an end. I then asked the student to type their rough draft. I find that this helps because the kids are more inclined to making changes since they don’t have to keep rewriting. I too prefer to type something out and edit it as opposed to rewriting it over and over.

Tomorrow we are going to look at the rubric for the original myth and make sure they incorporated what is being asked of them into their paper. Then they will self-edit and peer edit again. They will make the changes that are needed and then submit it to me for revisions.

Homework:

Read a minimum of 20 minutes.

Prepare for your book talk presentation on Thursday, October 24 (2 days!).

Monday is our library day so start thinking about November’s book genre which is fantasy or science fiction. You can check to see if Mrs. Butler has the book in the library using the online card catalog (on the EJH website).
