- Wednesday, December 5th, 2012- The second Writing Folio Mock Writing Assessment

Tomorrow we will take a look at how each student did on the first Mock Writing Assessment. I encourage you to visit the site www.FolioWriting.com using the username and password provided to your student in class (or you can email me for that information) to look over their work.
