Advanced Writing
 
Advanced Writing is for the serious writer.

Students will begin with a unit on poetry to review the types of figurative language.

Students will soon begin a unit on the character sketch. They will be writing three of them. One will be on a person they admire and one will be a experiment with persona. One will be an essay of their choice. We will also be writing a character sketch from the memior.

We will then move on to a research paper using the APA format. Students will be researching an issue related to the memoir.

We will also be reading and discussing the novel The Glass Castle via Edmondo. Students will respond to prompts on Edmodo each week.
