Welcome to MHS Composition Wiki!

This semester, students in Ms. Rhoten's Composition classes will share their work with a larger community through Wikispace. This will allow you, the student, to share and respond to relevant issues by way of the Editorial and Rebuttal Assignments. It is important that all students participate in this forum in order to express educated opinions on topics that matter to a broad audience. The discussions will be public and therefore will require appropriate language and tone throughout this process. Please remember that any Composition student can view your work, and likewise, any Composition student can respond to your work. Please be respectful and open-minded about the comments you post.

The following is the Editorial Rubric used to grade your Editorial Assignment. As you write the Editorial, remember to apply all formal writing skills you have learned in Composition this semester, focusing on persuasive techniques.
