THE Writing Project is a series of writing assignments that students will complete over the course of the school year. To not overwhelm the student, I break the assignments into small sections of ten to twelve. Through these assignments, they will continually practice writing and also learn important literary terms and devices they must know. Through THE Writing Project they will practice thesis writing, MLA citation, poetry writing, expository writing, research writing (to name a few). Students will practice writing using metaphors, extended metaphors, personification, allusion, symbolism, etc. Of course, editing their works will also be an important component of the project. By the end of the year, students will have a portfolio of approximately sixty edited and revised works; hopefully, becoming one of their most prized possessions!
