Periods 3/4 and 5/6 Assignments:
1. Go to the Edit and Revise folder in the Public folder. Download and SAVE your table’s assigned essay.
2. Read the essay.
3. Notice how all of the essays sound alike because they have the same five paragraph structure. Revise the essay without changing the structure. Try adding an exciting introductory sentence, adding some interesting transition words, or using the Visual Thesaurus to make the essay more riveting. Highlight your changes in yellow. Think about how you might change your own essay.
4. Correct all of the spelling and punctuation errors. Highlight your corrections in blue.
5. Use the "invisbles" to correct the essay format. For instance, if you see ………………….. this means the author used the space bar instead of the correct formatting tool.
