Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!

 Student Council meetings are held on Wednesdays at 7:30 AM in Room 307

Week of 2/11 - 2/15:

This week, students in sixth grade will continue to work on their persuasive essays. They will be continuing to write their first drafts, as well as doing some analysis of strong introduction and conclusion paragraphs.

Students in seventh grade will finish up writing and editing their sequels to "Charles" by Shirley Jackson; we will then begin reading and discussing another short story, "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury.

Students in eighth grade will be continuing our unit on social/political issues. They should be transitioning from doing research on their chosen issue to writing a first draft of their paper, in which they explain the issue, its significance, and what different groups in society believe about it.

In Social Studies, we will be finishing up with The Kid Who Ran For President by Dan Gutman, reading the end of the story and discussing how it is similar to/different from what running for president is really like.
