Due 9/15 (9/16 for 10B): In-Class Writing Assignment

1. Tomorrow you will have your in-class base writing assignment on Purple Hibiscus. At this point you know you will have to write two paragraphs. You WILL NOT have to write a complete essay.

Remember, the baseline writing will give me a sense of your strengths and weaknesses as a writer. Be sure that each paragraph features an opinion/argument in the topic sentence. Do not merely make an observation in your topic sentence. I am most interested in your understanding of paragraph development. Do not fret about the grade here (unless it is clear that you did not read the novel). This is just the first step in the direction of you becoming an excellent writer.

2. Literary Terms–Print this out and place it in your binder. It should be in your binder for Monday!
