To begin the year, we would like to learn about you while at the same time reviewing important writing skills. In order to accomplish this goal, you will be writing an essay on which you are an expert—yourself. We will be going through all of the steps that will be involved in a typical writing piece throughout the year—researching, brainstorming, preplanning, drafting, revising, and publishing.
Requirements: Researching: For this piece we are going to gather information about ourselves!
Brainstorming: You are required to create and turn in a “30 Facts About Myself” list that will help you compile ideas and think about what you want to share/write!
Preplanning: You will create a basic plan for your essay by organizing your ideas into a five paragraph essay.
Drafting/Revising: You will write a rough draft to be submitted for revision by a peer.
