We held off on starting this new PAW until today because I really wanted the students to focus on studying last night. The new PAW was put in their mailboxes this morning, and will be due (as usual) on Friday. It was explained in class, and the directions are written on the prompt itself, but just in case:
-Brainstorm a list of five wishes/gifts you could give to your chosen person
-Choose ONE wish/gift to focus on for the writing
-Write a two-paragraph (minimum) rough draft
-Edit rough draft with a parent/adult family member
-Write final draft
Q&A (most common):
1. Can I type my final draft?
Yes, you may type it at home and print it out to submit.
2. Do I have to write the final in pen?
No, you may write it in pencil.
Encourage the students to reread the prompt! Often any questions that come up have answers written right on that page. Click on the link below to view the prompt if the paper copy given to the students didn’t quiet make it home…
