Writing contest for Mr. Macnamara’s Class 5/24

 We are discussing our writing contest today and formulating questions for our contest. I would like us to brainstorm and come up with at least two questions that writers could answer. They should be opinion questions with some depth to them. Submit your questions for evaluation ( by the class) on paper and blog them hear as well.

Here are some resources you can read over to formulate your question.
