It was a short week, but certainly not one lacking in energy!!! Having spent Wednesday brainstorming our paragraph planner, the Smartians then┬ájumped into their work with gusto… First came the architect design plans, and then came the drafting of the “buyer’s guide”. Altogether there is a plan for 5 paragraphs (see previous blog post) and everyone got down to some serious Writing Workshop creating. They are editing and revising their work paragraph by paragraph, checking in to get expert advice before moving on. It has been fun to see the Smartians write “like a professor” and then move into “suck them in” persuasive writing in the 4th and 5th paragraph!! Will they be able to convince their clients to “buy” their house designs??!! Stay tuned for the Friday March 15 Energy Showcase to find out. (psssssst… you may just get a sneak peek of the drafting process at the Student-Led Conferences!!) Meanwhile, enjoy these photos of the Energy House architect plans…
