March Submission – Due April 15, 2021

Some have handed this in and some have not. Please send ASAP so that I can submit marks to Ms Annemarie.

The March Submission was the two worksheets, entitled Unique Writing Strategies, that you may have completed together with a partner. If you choose to work independently, you did not need to complete all 8 examples, aim for 5, on the first 2 pages. (Strategy #1 and Strategy #2.)
