Friday Classwork/Homework 01/24/2020
Good Morning and Happy Friday everyone! Please click on the LINK to read through some tips and suggestions for writing narrative essays. You should look at these guiding questions again if you are still struggling to find a topic. Remember, you should choose one specific event or moment to describe. (Ex. â€œMy Trip to Japanâ€ is too general for this essay assignment…instead consider â€œAdventure in a Tokyo Public Toiletâ€…now thatâ€™s more focused!
