CAT Time 8/20/19
Students, as you know, CAT Time is the 25 minutes before lunch that we have for ELA (English Language Arts) reinforcement. What we are currently working on is to help build your narrative writing ability in the event of the End of Course exams featuring a narrative. It will either be a narrative, expository, or argumentative writing piece, so we need to be fully prepared.
We will continue writing your narratives tomorrow, 8/21, and I will be coming around the room to assist you. I'll have notes on the board in which you will need to follow explicitly. The art of writing is extremely important, not only for the academic world, but also for the working world. Not everything can be done via computer, and even if it could, one with the more mature writing skills is the one more likely to get the job.
Come to class tomorrow prepared to revise your narrative, not chat with your friends. This is a time for you to get the help you feel you may need to get a better score on the EOC. REMEMBER: the EOC counts for 20% of your final grade in my class. If you fail my class, you fail the whole 9th grade. Just a tidbit.
Let me help you and I promise, you will soar. See you tomorrow!
