Today we recorded our first essay on our new writing logs. We then worked on "the basics" with a mind that if we look after the small things, the more complex things won't seem such big deals. I hope we all now see how by manipulating "names/tells more" we can vary our sentence length, work between simple, compound and complex sentences, and eliminate run-ons and fragments. Check out how many aspects of the writing rubric that alone will satisfy. We shall continue tomorrow and look at editing our essays.
