Writing – Your writing assignment this week is to create a description of your own Alien Landscape. You may name it, decide where it is located, and invent all of its important features. You may write in 1st or 3rd person. Since this is descriptive writing, keep narration (sequence of events, action) to a minimum. You are to use all the figures of speech we have learned so far and they MUST be marked and labeled correctly. Ideas for labeling: in pencil in the margin, highlight and provide a “key” at the bottom, or put the label in parentheses following the sentence.
Parallelism phrases or clauses
