Ms. Capponi English 8: Find Your Voice

Find Your Voice!
This unit is a writing warm up for eighth graders. While most of us use our speaking voices frequently and with great ease, our writing voices often go underused. We need practice, flexing our writing muscles before we can comfortably finish that writing marathon known as the personal essay. I have divided our unit into laps, each adding more skills and sophistication to our writing.  
Lap One
What's Your Flavor? The Perfect Paragraph
Lap Two
Personal Learning Style
Lap Three
Personal Totem: Symbolism
Lap Four
There's an APP for that!
Lap Five Theme Song: The Time of your Life
Lap Six
"The Human Race Essay": Using your Boldest Voice
Cool Down
Presentations and Podcasts
