WEEKLY HOMEWORK:

SLICE OF LIFE WRITING

Each week students will have to write one Slice of Life story in their notebooks or on their wiki page.

Stories will be due every Monday.

What is a Slice of Life story? It's a piece about a small moment in your life. It can be a special moment or an ordinary one.

It doesn't have to have a problem or a plot.

It should have dialogue (inner and outer) if possible. It should also have as much detail as possible.

Just think of something that's happened to you, recently or long ago, and write.

Here are some examples:
