Here’s what’s due:
- Decide on two possible topics for your personal narrative: moments in time that you think have a good conflict & show how you grew, especially in terms of the things that you desired or believed about life. Write 3-8ish sentences for each topic, enough to get your thoughts down on paper and help me understand the gist of the story. Bring this back to class.
- Read about how to combine sentences, pages 94-98 in your Grammar to Go textbook. Also listen to the “What Is a Subordinate Clause” podcast on Grammar Girl (See the “Play” button in the upper right hand corner of the screen to listen to the podcast episode.) When you’ve finished both these things, complete Practice Set 8-8 (pg 95-96 in Grammar To Go) in your homework notebook.
- We will have a short quiz on identifying simple, compound, and complex sentences.
