Class Agenda #14 AND #15

Circle Up- Knee Circles, Arm Circles, Hip Twists

1- Word about writing Essays

One way to become a great writer:

Fact3: Hunter Thompson copied F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms by typewriter to learn about the respective author’s writing styles- http://www.hunter-s-thompson.com/

E.B White- Literally, wrote the book on writing.

Here is one of his most famous Essays-

Task- Before we start writing our own essays, I want us to practice writing a classic essay. During class this week we will be copying as much of E.B. White’s “Here is New York,” into our writing notebook as we can. Make sure your writing looks exactly, EXACTLY, like his.

Good Luck.
