Writing Wednesday: Attitudes on English

Today is our first Writing Wednesday. Each Wednesday’s class will start with a writing prompt; look below for your first one.


Please complete this assignment on your own piece of paper; each response should be a minimum of 6-8 sentences. Refrain from “fluff sentences” such as “This is why I like English class.” If you’re stuck, provide additional details!

  1. Describe an experience that has shaped your attitude about English. This can be positive or negative, but make sure you think of a specific example.
  2. Describe a success that you have had. This can be ANY success, even if it may not seem like a big deal to someone else. Please include how you felt about it.
  3. Finally, explain what your FAVORITE thing is about English and why. Think hard; I want each of you to have at least one.

Investigative Challenge – Who is Ms. Antonacci?

In order to hone our analysis skills, you will be taking on the role of an investigator and observe the suspect (Ms. A.!) and the crime scene (our classroom). You will observe the classroom for evidence, then analyze each piece of evidence to determine what it reveals about the suspect.

So what’s the link? When we analyze texts throughout the semester, we must dig below the surface and “pick apart” each text. Like a good detective, you should analyze EVERY bit of evidence!
