with Michelle Cameron
Today the groups finished their plays! They read them aloud, and a couple of the groups were able to run through them with props in mind. We’ve left the major props at Mosaic, but each group made a list of any additional props they need. Here it is:
Conferencing and Revision
I finished my review of everyone’s work EXCEPT for Gabriel and Kaitlyn, both of whom still need to bring the piece they want to read/have published in. Note that it needs to be typed!
PLEASE HAVE THEM FINALIZE ANY CORRECTIONS AND EMAIL ME THEIR WRITING. Some of them still have some serious rewriting to do – they should know who they are! Email to firstname.lastname@example.org, please. I’ll be setting up their online publication over the next few weeks.
Back to Writing Next Week...
We’ll be rehearsing a little bit each week until the performance, but I’m eager to get the kids back to writing on their own. If any of them are inspired to write over the week, I’d love it! I gave them a prompt in class: “POW! He (or she) fell down.” Not required, but do encourage them!
