Next, we learned how to use the SPERM-G acronym to help guide us in a pre-write for a long written answer. This helps ensure that we don't compose answers that are too narrow in focus. I also wrote a topic sentence and then showed how we might start a paragraph on the Peace Talks of 1919. Finally, I shared the format of the test including the exact prompt that will appear on tomorrow's test. If you'd like, you can write tonight and then just re-compose from memory tomorrow.
Good luck - study hard tonight and I'll give you the weekend off.
