Journal writing is part of the weekly homework. Students have been writing stories, information-based compositions, letters, poems, and more. In an effort for students to edit and improve their writing, a laminated rubric will be included in the journal. Students are asked to assess their own writing and choose one area for improvement each week. I have explained this to the class so they are all aware of the new routine.
