Nature Writing

Good morning,
Yesterday we finished our reading of John Muir's description of the storm. I added a pin to the map below (way below) to show you roughly where he was when he climbed that tree. You need to find at least one quote from his writing that shows he enjoyed the storm. Add that quote to your English Journal. (You should have done this yesterday, but I'm giving you another reminder.)
A Wind Storm in the Forest << Here is the link again so you don't have to go looking for it.

Today you get your next writing assignment. Read over the assignment carefully. Nature Writing Assignment
Then, in your English Journal again, write a quick paragraph to me about:
  1. what the assignment is,
  2. what you think you might write about
  3. and what you think you might need help with.

AFTER you have written to me in your EJ you can start a new document and begin free writing to find your main idea.

Remember: When you share documents always un-check the boxes that allow collaborators to invite others.
