LI: I can write a persuasive piece of writing that has clearly developed opinion and ideas, uses evidence to support reasons, is well organized using transitions, and has a strong, original lead and conclusion. I think I improved most on my Introduction, it started very week but now it is pretty strong.
LI: I can compare characters and their traits showing an understanding of who they are. Here is my venn diagram for Devil's Arithmetic. In this diagram out of 24 I received 24.

That button will take you to my heroism essay.
I learnt a lot of new things, I never knew how powerful my writing was until now. I am most proud of it. I never knew how brave a hero had to be, but I realize now to be a hero you do not have to be that brave you just have to help someone. Below is an amazing video with some heroes helping people.
“You have to paint this canvas, it must look astounding, otherwise you will be stuck in this dingy cell.” “Yes Miss.Arthur,” Dave said. Miss.Arthur marched out of the musty room. Dropping to his knees, Dave said “I need to be fast as fast as a charging bull.” He sat and waited until he was fed up with thinking, But finally he had an idea, “I will paint this room!” Days went by, when he was finished he was famished, parched and fatigued. Trying to get up but Dave struggled and fell. Where was Miss.Arthur? Dave laid there exasperated, waiting for Miss.Arthur.
Week #12 Prompt: A letter in a bottle (something to help the people philipines).

As it moves swiftly through the shadowy hallway, it's like the beast was never there. He is as black as charcoal and his bloody red eyes stare down into your soul. The teeth are as sharp as small shards of broken glass. Blood drizzled down the neck of the monster, staining it a velvet red. Like a shadow seeking for something. The one thing it wants and the only thing it needs. Searching and searching.Tail moved tensly from side to side. Something it sees catches the eye. Fast like a flash of lightning, it pounces on it's prey. Who will it be next?
