Your homework for tonight is KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON! There's nothing that you can do at this point to get ready for tomorrow other than:
- review your writing skills for each essay
- look over your tone words and learn definitions
- review literary/rhetorical devices (there's a link a few posts back)
Be in my room tomorrow morning before the exam at 7:25 am so that we can do our chant of "This is my pen!" and apply warpaint for the exam.
Next class we will spend half of our period in the computer lab drafting our essays. To prepare for this you should continue the work that we were doing today in class during our writing workshop. Finish your topics. Continue to develop your examples. Do more to explain and describe your evidence. Put your voice in your writing through your descriptions. Full rough drafts will be due next week, so those of you who may be behind in the writing process should work hard to get caught up.
