The Goal:  


So, how DO your family traditions compare and contrast?

Your answer will be in the form of a compare and contrast paragraph.  Your graphic organizer, audience inventory, purpose, and writing scaffold are the foundations of your rough draft.  You will revise and edit until you have an error-free draft in MI Write You will then share your work with your instructor, get feedback from others, and polish your work.  

Finally, you will publish your final draft in our class discussion group, where your peers will complete a review called "Two Stars and a Wish."


1.  Log into MI Write.

2.  Find the working draft of your writing.  It should be the entry with the newest date.




3.  BE SURE you have gotten feedback to make the writing the best it can be.

4.  Ask someone to read your working draft OUT LOUD.  Listen for the reader's pauses or re-reads.  This is a good indication you need to make a few more revisions.

5. You are striving for an error-free version of the draft.

6.  Save/Submit your work regularly so you don't run the risk of losing it.


Post to the class discussion Group

Finally, post your error-free final draft in our class discussion group.  

Complete at least three replies to someone's writing - use Two Stars and a Wish to frame your comments.  This is part of your grade.  Parents may comment too!
