English 1 & 2: ROUGH DRAFTS DUE 5/22 (A) & 5/23 (B)

Hello everyone!

The rough draft of your M4 performance task is due on Monday, 5/22 (A) & Tuesday, 5/23 (B).

Each class will be conducting peer reviews. Your rough draft counts toward your final performance task grade and your participation in peer review will be graded as double classwork.

Please bring a PRINTED copy of your paper to class. Contact me if you do not have access to a printer.

Also, I sent out an email about MLA formatting. Please be sure to check that email and follow the instructions.

Contact me with any questions or concerns.

Have a great day,

Mrs. Wasley
