Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today's class was cut short, but we still discussed the expectations for the rough/first draft of the VFW Essay.  What is being submitted on Monday IS NOT the FINAL draft. We discussed, at great length, what my expectations are for the first draft and how they will be used next week. I showed the 8th graders an outline that we will use next week to help form introductions and conclusions. In essence their first draft will end up being their three body paragraphs. Below are my expectations:
  • Each student must select at least 3 adjectives that represent the America they believe in.
  • Each point needs to be explained in a paragraph (these will end up being their 3 body paragraphs).
  • Must be done in 12 pt, Times New Roman, and DOUBLE SPACED 
  • Must be submitted through Google Classroom
