Today, our essential questions were:
How can I post a teacher edit on Blackboard?
How can I give my peer feedback that is actually helpful?

If writing is like a conversation, only usually you have to IMAGINE your reader’s response, then peer editing/revising is *genius* because it lets you in on an actual reader’s response. It’s like a secret weapon! So, use it, and use it often. 🙂
Tomorrow, we have our usual quiz, and we’re up to four roots:
I can’t wait to see what you come up with for the vocab skits!
