We are smack in the middle of the writing process! Next week will allow you to work at your own pace and take the This I Believe composition to your personal best draft. This may mean three drafts or seven. Push for your personal excellence. You are encouraged to refine your first draft over the weekend. You can call this draft 1.5 or even title a draft 2 if you make significant changes. My last note is to spend more time on ideas, organization, and voice than on conventions. Your best draft (at this stage) is due at the beginning of Tuesday's class.
For Monday, prepare for the second vocabulary test.
Let me know if you have any questions.
