YOUR LEGEND

      Think of real details about you and your life.
      Add new details to make your story extraordinary.
      Keep it real enough to be believable, but don’t be afraid to add things that are not real, such as magical powers, etc.
     Write it in your journal with today’s date (8-17-16) and the topic “My Legend”.
     
     Today is your rough draft. Review it with a classmate or the peer tutor so you are ready to type the final draft tomorrow. It will hang in the hall, so consider your audience!!
