What we're doing in class today
In-class Notebook Work
- Write about a time when you were out in nature and it was uncomfortable, dangerous, or just downright terrible.
- You should start by writing a "graphic organizer" in your notebook (see slide 10 of the presentation).
- Once you've written the graphic organizer, start writing your "Down Draft" (if you don't remember what a "down draft" is, see Rule 4 of Write Club)
