Advanced Writing Class notes March 9, 2011. Persuasive essays, our literary journal, skits revisited

Dear Scholars,

This week Breana presented the debate topic: Is it a good idea for high-school students to have part time jobs? We discussed it briefly, but then the topic changed. We can pursue this topic more later.
Writing class journal
Adrian brought in a sample of the historical fiction issue of the Advanced Writing Class Literary journal. He has done a superb job handling the layout, duplication and binding. Much credit goes to Angela, Adrian and all of you for your excellent work on our first issue. Unfortunately, not everyone had pieces in this issue due to its theme and to space considerations. We will try to make sure that everyone is represented in the next one. There will be a limited number of copies available at the EIE bookstore next Thursday. You should all have copies for your academic portfolios.
Cheese shop
McKenna joined our class for the first time and made some excellent suggestions including a request that we act out the Cheese Shop skit — and, after some discussion of the subject, we decided to revisit the topic of skit writing. Please look at the skits posted in the Skit Section of our classroom. Our Cheese Shop classroom page has now been expanded to include a full script of the sketch together with an account of how it was inspired and a table of all cheeses mentioned. Please everyone watch The Cheese Shop.

A Scriptwriting forum has been created in the classroom. Please post ideas. This could be a lot of fun.
