I will go around the room to see if you
completed your first homework
Grading: Homework counts as 10 % of your overall Language Arts grade; “starting point” is 100% if turned in on time & 75% if it is late; you have one week from the date the assignment was assigned to complete it and turn it in. If, after that week, you have chosen not to do so, you will receive a zero.

Review your responses from today’s Warm Up activity (the Reading Attitude survey) and think about yourself as a Language Arts student. On the back of that worksheet, or on a separate sheet of paper, use the friendly letter format (that you’ve known since elementary school ☺), and craft a letter to me about yourself as a reader/writer/thinker (R/T/W). In addition to containing the appropriate friendly letter components, your letter should consist of three well-written paragraphs.
1st paragraph: What are your strengths as a R/T/W? What do you think you do well?
2nd paragraph: What are some areas/suggestions for improvement that you’d like to focus on as a R/T/W that you’d like to have me help you with?
3rd paragraph: What is one thing you’d like me to know about you as a person?
