2007 SCHOOL-WIDE WRITING ASSIGNMENT
Each year the school will focus on a different type of writing. The school will collect a sample of that writing at the December LR Meeting, then score according to the school rubric, and save as our school writing samples. All students may participate, but 2nd to 11th graders, and 12th graders who have not yet passed CAHSEE ELA are required to participate. The school hopes to improve everyone's writing skills through this process.
