This week in writing students are still working on finalizing their personal opinion essays. Teachers are in the process of helping students revise their writing through Google Docs. We are helping students to use "Push Your Thinking" sentence stems to signify evidence, organization of ideas, as well as mechanics and conventions of the English language.
