Steps:
1. Open the attached Virtual Station Rotation slideshow. You will find instructions and links in this document, as well as YOUR SCHEDULED TIME to join the Zoom.
2. Join the Zoom during your scheduled time. Don't be late!
3. When you're not in the Socratic Seminar Zoom, you will be working through the stations listed in the Virtual Station Rotation slideshow. These include: Article and annotation, summary video, and a quick write. Look at the slideshow for more information.

⭐ You should only mark as done once you've finished the work for ALL of the stations

Homework - Draft Personal Narrative in Google Classroom

Homework - Draft Personal Narrative

Write your personal narrative AT LEAST through the CLIMAX of the story.

Focus on your PACING (don't rush!) and SHOWING instead of telling (don't just list events; make us feel like we're there).

Due:

Homework -Start Personal Narrative in Google Classroom

Homework -Start Personal Narrative

It's time to get a good start on your personal narrative essay.

Sometimes starting can be the most difficult part.

Your goal for your homework is to get words on the page.

Think about how you want to open your story. How will you grab the reader's interest? Will you start with dialogue? An interesting description of the setting? An event in action?

Your assignment: Write the first paragraph or two of your personal narrative. Make it a really strong opening. (Remember what we talked about regarding just finishing vs. fully engaging.)
