ZoomaZoom Link:

Check in in Chat (PUBLIC!): Copy/Paste last night’s KBARR response. If you didn’t do it, say so. This should have been your third one for the week!

SGI (2/4): Opportunity to get ideas for your 600 words/week. I will provide topics and ideas to get you going. No need to stay the whole time; I’ma just going to jump-start you. Also if you have issues or zeros or just have a question. Otherwise go do your KBARR and your SMYK’s. Also, I want to see you if you STILL don’t have a MAUS book yet.

Open or start your 600 Words document. If you haven’t already shared it with me, do so now. These sentences count toward your quota.

I noticed some of you not being completely original in your ramblings. Ummm… that’s sort of the point! You WILL get a zero if (WHEN) I catch you plagiarizing!

“Sentence Combining, 2/3 (2/4).” Remember, you may add, subtract and rearrange as much as you want.  There are many ways to do this one. They all count toward 600 words. Try to make it a COMPLEX (although, because, since…) sentence. Do a word count and type the number when you are finished.
