2) Group stories
3) Discuss Student "Why I Write"
4) Introduce workdays--Every Thursday, students will be given the opportunity to work on any Creative Writing assignment they need to. This could be the semester project, the Honors mini lesson, the current unit assignment, or they can meet with writing groups. The point is, the students get to choose how they want to spend that time, as long as they are being productive.
5) First Workday!
1) Your Why I write is due tomorrow by the end of the day
2) Your first benchmark is due on February 23, so start brainstorming for that!
