Welcome back to Branford High for a new year and new learning experience in Writing the Essay.
As we've discussed in class, the focus of this year is writing. This blog will play a significant role in that learning process.. Here you will find regular assignments, important links, and opportunities to contribute ideas. In many instances this site will also serve as an extension of the reading, writing, and thinking we do in class. Using a blog like this allows us unique opportunity to publish our writing and maintain a record of our thinking and learning through the year. What makes a blog unique for our writing is that it allows us to publish our words, contribute ideas to others, and collaborate with one another.
You'll also notice that there is a calendar on the right of this page which lists upcoming due dates and other important announcements. I plan to add even more materials and information to help you learn in this class. And as the year goes on, you can expect this site to grow with content from me and from all of you.
Good luck and enjoy the year.
