Congratulations! 99% of all of my students completed their Author Study Compare and Contrast essay on time!! We have moved into our next writing project, the research paper. Students are focusing their research on issues surrounding pollution. Last week, we worked on developing guiding questions and checking the viability of our topics and the availability of data. This week, we will continue to work on research and formatting. 

Key due dates:
Rough Drafts: April 23 (with comments from two students); please print the paper and the comments
Final Draft: April 29 (includes final edits and proper formatting)

Because of school wide testing much of the work will be done on netbooks and at home.
