We finished taking notes on news writing using this Google slide presentation. From there I check in your notes from last week and today for points before also checking in your news writing packet from Friday for completion. You had two other handouts to complete today to attach to the packet for tomorrow including one regarding the inverted pyramid and one regarding types of bridges. We will go over it then.

Your Friday newspaper article/”quiz”/reflection for the mass media projects is due tomorrow as well.

R&W: MLA Format Quiz + SSR/Outline Work

You first took a partner MLA Format Quiz before you were given the option to either SSR or work on your MLA format essay outline due tomorrow at the beginning of the hour. It is due along with notes on two selected sources (notes can be done in any format we have discussed).

Also, I am going to hold off on giving you your SSR project until after Thanksgiving break.

I am also going to move the due date for a full rough draft to Tuesday, Nov. 22nd. We will peer edit that day. A second rough draft will be due the day we return from break, Nov. 27. 

The grammar packet from last Wednesday is due Friday. I will also be uploading the different 20% project rubrics to our shared folder, so take a look on Friday while you’re working to see what your specific project must entail.
