For this unit you will be responsible for writing a number of pieces. From each of the lists below, you're required to choose one and write that kind of article. Consider your student body your audience and your purpose to be writing for The Pine Needle.

You choose a piece and you work on it, and as you need help, you consult each other and Mr. Sheehy. You are responsible for keeping track of what you accomplish and earning a daily grade for your behavior and work ethic during class.

Whatever method you choose, I emphasize that these need to have strong introductory paragraphs. You can view my attention grabbing handout here.
