Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.

 Important Updates
 May 26-May 29 This week we focused on the art of revision. Students had the opportunity to receive feedback on their statement pieces and explore revision. We focused mainly on voice. Students explored what other students do and think about in the revision stage of writing. This work covered standard  8.8l) Revise writing for clarity of content, word choice, sentence variety, and transitions among paragraphs.

May 18-May 22
    

This week we continue our work on our "Statement Piece". This piece was modeled after the world-renowned "This I Believe" essay. In 500-600 words, students were able to share something important about themselves be it a story, a memory, information about something they are passionate about.  This all lines up perfectly with SOL standard 8.7k)Develop and modify the central idea, tone, and voice to fit the audience and purpose. It also reviews 8.8f)Use quotation marks with dialogue and direct quotations.After this week, we will move on to revision practice and reading like a writer--a practice we began earlier in the year.
