Third graders are beginning to do some research for their persuasive writing papers. Students are giving surveys this week to find out how certain people preserve memories. The guiding question for the paper is, “What is the best way to preserve memories?” (Modern method= using technology, OR Traditional method= no technology) Students are expected to take a stance on one side of the issue and give solid reasons with elaborating support. These papers will be completed AT HOME. We will be working on rough drafts starting next week, one paragraph each night. The final paper will be a five paragraph essay. The due date is TBT, but most likely the first week in May.
