Reading students’ blogs gives me insight into individual students. I enjoy the process. I had planned to count fourth-quarter blogs as summative grades. However, I’m interested to know if students are finding blogging helpful and insightful. Using at least two complete sentences, use your persuasive voices, tell me if we should have blogs for the fourth quarter and if they should be formative or summative. Students will get a maximum of 50 percent if they do not have two complete sentences.

Now that the writing SOL is over, we’ll be picking up our novels again. Instead of a paper for the final project, we might create something else. Make some suggestions as to what would work. Note at least one specific item that should be graded as part of the assessment. Remember: complete sentences count. Example: I’d like to create a poster that focuses on at least two different types of conflicts.

After reviewing the list of SOL writing prompts (in class or from my website: https://marstellerms.pwcs.edu/common/pages/DisplayFile.aspx?itemId=26979118), note which prompt you feel you could easily answer and which prompt would be tough for you. Use a transition word or phrase between your pro/con (a list of transition words is here: https://owl.purdue.edu/engagement/ged_preparation/part_1_lessons_1_4/transitions.html).  You can either quote the prompt completely or simply give enough detail to show which prompt you are referencing. Use a minimum of two complete sentences. Example: I would find it relatively  easy to talk about a club or activity (page one, prompt four) that students enjoy; I would write about photography club. However, I would have a harder time picking a side on the prompt that asks whether a required extracurricular activity would be worthwhile (page four, prompt three).

Pick one of the two options below to address. Be sure to use note which one you’re focusing on. Also, be sure to use complete sentences with spectacular sensory details. Quote: Use a quote correctly showing commas and attribution. Write it with the attribution (who said it) at the beginning. Then, reverse it and put the attribution at the end. Remember all punctuation and capitalization. Dependent Clause: Write a sentence with a dependent clause at the beginning of the sentence. Then, reverse it.
