We have finished our first timed writing assignment on Of Mice and Men. In spite of the stress, everyone survived and then went on to take a test on a passage from Frankenstein. I know, it sounds like a lot, but everyone who tried will get an A on the assignment because my goal is to have them learn from the process of writing and taking a multiple choice test. That's what we will be doing next week.
Just a warning: Next week I will be assigning the most difficult assignment of the entire year. Don't worry! Others have survived the Dreaded Fold-a-Book and so can you!
