Hi students! Even though we are done with our Critical Current lesson last Friday, I thought I'd still post the pictures here so we can reflect back on the year and see all the news stories we've discussed by the end of the school year! You can also post this on your own blogs as well!

Below, you will find the 7 strategies that I discussed in class that are all geared towards improving your writing, or sprucing up your writing. Even if you consider and apply just half of these strategies, I can guarantee that your writing will become more interesting and effective.

Please remember to read over the essay prompt for homework tonight. I have also uploaded this prompt into our ELA textbook folder on Google drive and on Canvas under the FFA Module.

Every other Friday, we will stop what we are learning about and focus on critical thinking through current events. Last Friday, we reviewed the news of the week by testing our knowledge of what happened in the course of one week. Now, on your weebly websites, go ahead and reflect on the "discussion questions" by adding your thoughts and reflections about what you learned.
