Warm up: Vocab practice! That quiz is next Friday so please make sure you study! Remember that Quizlet link is right there. --->
Students were expected to have the rough draft of their letter completed today. Students who were prepared were partnered up. They exchanged papers, either physically or on Google Docs, and did peer edits. I've linked the instructions for peer edits below.
Students who were not prepared with their rough draft have more work to do over the weekend. They need to complete their rough draft and share it with someone else from the class. That person needs to peer edit the paper so the author can make necessary changes.
FINAL DRAFTS ARE DUE TUESDAY!
Warm up: Vocab #1 week 3 of 4. Your Quizlet practice sets have been updated in the link to the right.
If I didn't check your notebook Friday, I checked it today.
Today we went over the writing prompt which will be our major grade for the first unit: "To Clone or Not to Clone". Please read through the prompt carefully to identify that you are writing a letter to the U.S. Senator from California expressing your approval or disapproval of cloning research.
On the back/second page of the document, create a T-Chart of evidence. Evidence in favor of cloning on the left and against cloning on the right. Then answer the questions below.
I then went over an outline of our letter format in class and we wrote our introductory paragraph and planned out the rest of the letter. Please see a classmate's for an example.
Finish gathering evidence on your T-Chart and answering the guiding questions.
