Mr. Hebert- Grade 6-8 Writing

Welcome to Writing!

 Student Council meetings are held on Wednesdays at 7:30 AM in Room 307

Week of 1/22 - 25:

This week, students in sixth grade will finish up their information books for children and present them to the Kindergarten classes. Thanks to Mr. Haley and Mrs. Wheelock for inviting us into their classrooms!

Students in seventh grade will continue to revise and edit their research-based informative essays. We will also be reading, discussing, and analyzing some strong examples of this kind of writing, paying special attention to how writers work to engage their audiences.

Students in eighth grade will be starting a unit on social/political issues. Each student will choose a particular issue to research. Their job as writers will then be to explain the issue in an unbiased way, as well as the different beliefs and opinions that various groups hold on the issue.

In Social Studies, we will continue to read and discuss The Kid Who Ran For President by Dan Gutman. Students will also continue to work on their American History research projects, which are tentatively due by Friday.

Reminder: Current Events assignment due every Friday @ 1:15 PM
