Hey guys,

Here’s a bundle of stuff for you to use while I’m gone.  First, the link to the LORE: The Bloody Pit podcast.  You can find the transcript on GoogleClassroom along with another reading you will use as a mentor text called Chew on This.

You all identified some things you are eager to work on in your writing.  Here are the lessons that correspond to revision targets, as well as the people who identified them as their targets.  Some of these videos are on Flocabulary, some are recorded by me.  All use guided notes or mentor texts. Happy revising!
