Hooray for writing and hooray for you, young writers!
Let's cut to the chase and check out what we've been working on this past week and a half.
As a quick reminder, remember that YOUR vignettes should show the footprints of Cisneros' work and capture the essence of Mango Street in some way. Remember to borrow from the writers' moves, to piece together these tiny little stories as windows into your lives, and to deliberately and intentionally craft your writing for effect.
I've been SO IMPRESSED by what I've read in conferences. Can't wait to see your final products! (Speaking of which, Monday -- all parts DUE. Print at home if you can; if not then in class Monday. And prepare yourself for something mango on Monday for a celebration of our work! woo!)
Your teacher, Mrs. Hilliard :)
