Introduction to the Class

Non-Fiction Writing may sound boring and too "scholarly," but the major goal of this course is to familiarize students with writing by setting up an electronic school newspaper.  As a class we will compose articles that interest the student body, edit pieces, challenge ourselves to achieve more, and learn that writing can be fun!  We will also discuss 21st century literacies and how it relates to technology and technology usage in the classroom.

 

I am looking forward to a great quarter! :)
