Students in Mrs. Clayton’s English 8 classes recently created their own fictitious creatures, as part of a paragraph writing unit. After discussing what makes a good paragraph, each student had the opportunity to create a plan and an illustration for an imagined creature. Next, each student was instructed to write a first draft and then a final draft, after editing and proofreading. Finally, students published their “features” and enjoyed sharing these with their peers. We appreciate Mrs. Clayton and her student's efforts!
