"Street Directions": Writing an Anecdote
March 18, 2005

This week, we will continue working on the reading "Street Directions" by Andy Rooney on page 58 of your new textbook.

Today’s Class Work:

  1. First we will take a Vocabulary Challenge Quiz on last week’s vocabulary.
  2. Next, student sentences will be shared on the screen for comment and suggestions
  3. Then we will discuss what makes a good anecdote (little story).
  4. Finally, students will begin writing a short anecdote about an annoyance that bothers them in their daily lives.


Finish writing your short anecdote (100 to 125 words).

Revise and correct your writing at least once.

Bring your completed work to class on April 1. NOTE: no class next week on Good Friday. Have a safe and happy Easter holiday weekend!
