We will begin working with Unit 3 this week and read an example of a good piece of informative writing. You will be asked to focus on how the author writes about his experiences using only facts, not opinions. After reading the example, we will take step-by-step notes on how to write an informative essay.
You will have next week to type the informative essay. The essay must be typed, and it will be due 2 weeks from today, March 5th, 2018.
Thursday: Choose topic for informative essay
Friday: Complete outline for informative essay
