Stephen King once said "If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around these two things that I'm aware of, no shortcut." So, as a final to this class, students will be asked to write a sustained piece of writing of their choice.
After sending our final issue of the Express to print, your task will be to write everyday. What you choose to write is entirely up to you. It can be news articles, feature articles, a short story, reviews, a research project, poetry, personal narratives, anything so long as it is school appropriate.
Grades will be based on quantity, effort, and the ability to put in work/stay on task every day.
