Readers Workshop
Writers Workshop

List and explain three ways that you have improved your writing from the beginning of the year to now….
1. I have improved my writing by not doing all creative writing anymore. I have started doing more essays and I have been practicing my creative writing a lot more.
2. I have been getting better criterion scores. The first one I did I got 4 out of 6 and then the next one I got 4 out of 4 and then my most recent one I got a 5 out of 6.
3. I thought that doing the literary analysis would be very hard but now that I have been doing it I see that it is getting easier and easier.
How has your reading improved this year? Explain.
My reading has improved a lot over the year. At the beginning of the year I have not been doing good at all with reading books. I would read 1 book about every 3 weeks. Now I have been at least reading 1 book a week or sometimes 1 book a day.
How do you feel about your language arts experience overall this year?
I think my Language arts experience has been great. Since the 40 book challenge has happened I think I am reading much more than I would if there was no 40 book challenge. Also I have been doing good at writing and I got a 97 out of 100 on my .... just because I did not paragraph enough.
What is your overall individual goal for this class?
My goal is to read 40 books total by the end of the year. I hope to get this because I have been trying hard to get to get to 40 books and it is out of 100 points and I don't want to get a bad score just for that one thing. I am starting to like reading more ever since the 40 book challenge.




Watson's Go to Birmingham Summary

The Watson's go to Birmingham 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis was inspired by the bombing of the church in 1963. It is about Kenny and his family, Byron his older brother, Joetta his younger sister and his parents Wilona and Daniel. Byron is such a trouble maker in every way. Momma and Dad can not handle him anymore. They go to Alabama on a trip but are planing to keep Byron there so he can live with Grandma Sands. After a couple days Joetta goes to Sunday school at a nearby church. Kenny hears a scream from Mama, it was a call from Joetta's church that just got bombed. They rush over and look for Joey, and they are very scared that she's dead. Kenny was so sad he goes back to the house and finds Joey there safe and alive. He rushes back to the church to go and tell everyone Joey is safe. Once all safe they move back to Flint, Michigan. Kenny is devastated and in shock. Byron helps Kenny by making him feel better and tells him everything is okay. Byron has defiantly changed through the book and become a stronger character.
