Big Ideas:

  1. It is important to read literature from the past and understand what message the author was trying to convey.
  2. Expressing oneself through writing is very important.
  3. Writing responses to literature, while also connecting it to yourself.

Essential Questions:

  1. What makes writing worth reading, and why should we do it?
  2. What makes a story effective for its purpose?
  3. How does an author create meaning in a text, and what makes that meaning valid?

      Hey Jamie, I always ask myself that first essential question, what makes writing worth reading? Why should we do it? Before I have to write anything I always think first about what I would genuinely like to read and try to portray the same in my writing so someone else can enjoy reading. Some people are actually very talented writers and can make anything sound good or capturing. For me it's always worth reading when I know I put in my best work and someone else can read and say the same and there's something in it for everyone not just yourself.
