Today we are starting “No Red Ink”

No Red Ink:  You will get a username and password to log into No Red Ink. This morning I “returned” an assignment to you through Teams.  In the comments you will find your username for No Red Ink…along with the password in the notes of the assignment.  I sent it to you this way so you will always have access to it.

It will be easier if you leave the password as is.  In the event that you change your password and then forget it…I cannot help you –so for convenience sake leave it as is (and you will all have the same password and this found on Teams in the Notes for the ‘assignment’ where I sent you your username.  The Website for No Red ink is:

https://www.noredink.com/

You will be navigated to put in your pop culture interests…You will then have an assignment to work on….sentence fragments.


Wednesday Writes:  we will spend time each Wednesday writing.  This writing will mostly be focused on ‘compositions’.  This is an opportunity for you to be creative, reflective and critical with your own writing.
