    Creative Writing

     Weeks 9-10

     

    Tuesday, Jan. 8 – Friday, Jan. 11:

    • Bellwork:  Instead of bellwork, we will spend the first 20 minutes doing SSR (Sustained Silent Reading).

    ·         Work on Part I of final project: Revisions of 2 Works and Reflection on revisions. You will submit the following this Friday, January 11:

    o    Revisions of TWO of your major writing assignments (narrative, personal essay, poetry (3 20 point poems) or drama)

    o    A reflection (1-3 pages) in which you answer: WHAT you revised, WHY, and HOW it improved your work.

    • Homework: 2 revisions due Friday, Jan. 11. Print out hard copies with NO NAMES or references to BHS. Place a post-it note with your name and lit fest category/genre.
    • Revisions due Friday, Jan. 11 to turnitin.com by midnight.

    NOTE: when finished with Part I, begin working on Part II: Lit Magazine or Film.

     

    • Here are some reminders about structure and rubric:
      •  LITERARY MAGAZINE: Create a literary magazine with a specific theme. You may work with a small group of people for this (up to 4), but each person must contribute a minimum of 3 pages of new writing to the magazine. Magazine must also have a mission statement and submission requirements.
      • FILM: Write a script, including cast, sets, and stage directions, for a 10-15 minute film with a captivating story structure, conflict, character growth, etc. Film the script and present to the class on last day of course.
    • Part II of Final Project due Thursday Jan. 17. Be prepared to present your final project to the class.

    Thursday, Jan. 17:

    • Presentation day! You’ll have about 15 minutes to make any finishing touches to your literary magazine or get your film project sent to Mrs. Biancheri via jump drive, email, or DVD to show to class.  Then we present!
    • Enjoy the rest of your year!
