We'll continue to write true stories (personal narratives) this week. Today I read aloud Sebastian Junger's "Colter's Way" to the 4th period class.
I explained that Junger makes a living writing true stories. Several students told me that they were familiar with The Perfect Storm, the film based on Junger's book of the same name.
As for the man who is mentioned in the title of Junger's piece that I read aloud, there is information about him here: http://xroads.virginia.edu/~hyper/hns/mtmen/johncol.html
