Students are revising and editing their Personal Narratives this week, in anticipation of our due date this Friday, November 17th. They have learned that writing is a process, not a "once and done" activity by completing each step of the writing task: brainstorming, outlining, rough draft writing, revising and editing. Writing is difficult. It makes us think deeply, it makes our thoughts and emotions public, it makes us be critical of our own work and be willing to change parts of what we've created.  I am looking forward to reading the students' polished stories where they are the main character in a story about themselves.
