Today, you received your Writer’s Notebooks (take home with you) and Reader’s Notebooks (leave in locker).
Tonight for homework, decorate your Writer’s Notebook with images and words that symbolize and represent YOU. This may take time. (You are not expected to finish it by the next class.)
In addition, in your Writer’s Notebook, start from the LAST PAGE and date it. You will be gathering seeds (brainstorming) for Personal Narrative ideas.
Remember: your seeds should be:
- memorable moments
- vivid memories with details you remember
- emotional memories– it’s a strong emotion attached to that event
A reminder: Here is the Writing Process we looked at today.
