The Journey writers have been hard at work, transferring some Science writing skills into LA!  CER is a style of writing that helps scientists communicate evidence and reasoning once a hypothesis has been made.  Now in LA class, we are reading non fiction articles and finding facts to back up our claim statements.  Topics have been from Freak the Mighty, and they have been wide-ranging:  Morquio Syndrome, King Arthur, and Bullying.  In the next couple of weeks, we will continue our study of informational writing with assignments that help us practice sequencing, and understanding problems and solutions and cause and effect.   I look forward to scholarly pursuits and impactful writing in the two weeks before Spring Break.
