Students began class by working some more on their personal narratives, hopefully coming close to completing their second story/anecdote. Then we finished talking about speaker/context/audience/purpose for the identity text we began last class. At the end of class, we started working on a new, much more challenging text that I borrowed from the AP Lang exam several years ago. We will continue with this text next time. Homework: try and wrap up your second narrative story/anecdote.
