    • Be sure to use literary devices to make your writing stronger.
    • A peer will review your story next week using the peer review sheet. I will assign one peer to read your story, but you can choose one this week if you are at this stage.
    • Final stories are due Friday, January 20th.

  • Continue your dystopian fiction story. This week, we will do peer review. Your story needs to be COMPLETED and reviewed by TWO peers by Friday.

On Friday, you will turn in TWO peer review sheets that peers have completed for you (printed in class, or linked above).
