I met incredible English students, read amazing student writing samples and learned how to use Dropbox this month!

The short story "After Twenty Years" by O. Henry is an amazing shorty story, made me feel as though I were in it. Heart felt to me. I almost had a tear roll down my cheek.

In L.A., I learned what a an indirect object was the second time i read over it. EXAMPLE. The raccoon was wet and cold. Wet and cold would be the I.O. ....I think.

Hi Mrs. Sol,
This month I learned is that a memoir is a story that sounds like the person telling it is having a conversation with you.

Over the last month I have learned about several very interesting scientists and much more than I ever knew about writing in general.

This month I learned how to write a memoir. I also learned that a memoir is a treasured memory that you will (hopefully) hold for the rest of your life.

I learned how to write a perfect memoir that I will treasure forever!!

Mrs. Sol,

Hi. I learned that Mark Twain got his penname (I already forgot his real name, to be honest) from a sailing/boating term for-I believe-deep water. He worked on a boat on the Mississippi River.

I learned how to be able to concentrate on my tests and go back and forth from each paragraph.

I really enjoyed learning about the different scientists. They were so dedicated and passionate about science, discovery and invention. They were inspiring. I especially liked Marie Curie and how she gave up so much for her love of discovery and science.

In october, I learned how to use the drop box. (:

David December 29, 2011 at 4:50 PM

This month, I barley got to figure out how to use most of the stuff here. I learned how to turn in the work in the drop box, and it is much easier for me to read the stories on a webpage.

I learned how to use the online school better by asking questions.

I was not very good at keep on top off my assignments for October. So for English I learned that I need to keep on track so that I can write what I learned for this course. For today I learned about writing argument essays.
