Reader's Response Overview
A basic idea of what should be in each paragraph...

I will post PDF copies of the homework here. I will also post copies of my root notes. Homework is assigned every Monday and is due the following Monday. I have put each week's documents under a separate heading. If you click on the large, underlined words, it will take you to a section where you can click on the document title and get a PDF of what was handed out or examined in class.

PDF Literacy Letter 2018   --  This is the very first homework. It is deliberately not very detailed about what I am looking for. This is because I want to know what YOUR idea of your BEST writing is. Give me the best you can do, so I will know what we are going to be building on. This is our baseline, a word which means the starting point we use to be able to compare to later information, to be able to notice change.
PDF Ms. B's sample Literacy Letter   --  This is my sample, so you have an idea of some of the things you might include.
PDF Explanations for what should be on the Blue Weekly Handout   --  This is notes to help you make good answers and sentences on your homework. It also answers some questions you might have. This is the Medium / Spicy version, but the same thing is true of the Mild version- include details and make sure you have periods!
