We are studying an advanced form of writing: the editorial. This is a blend of informational and persuasive writing. The students are working on their own editorial for the imaginary school newspaper on bullying. See Writing Google Classroom for research ideas (Eleanor Roosevelt article, poem, and iconographic) for facts to include in the piece.
Tuesday class- Rough drafts have been peer-edited and teacher approved. Final copies are due next class, Tuesday, April 16.
*Due before class that day
Thursday class- We are a bit behind the other group. This week we study two examples of editorials in preparation for writing rough drafts. Rough drafts and final copies due next class which will be after Easter.
