Today, we took a break from those pesky violent video games essays and took a more relaxed look at writing. I provided the class with three journal prompts; two were academic writing and one was narrative writing. Students had to choose 2 prompts to respond to. This was great on-the-spot writing training.
Period 11: We met in the lab and typed up our violent video games essay. We'll meet in the lab again tomorrow to finish everything up.
