1. What is one piece of important learning in reading or writing you have gained this week?

For writing it would be it is better to plan your essay first and gonna isn't a word. Instead of using the word gonna you should use going to. For reading I have learned that sometimes you have to read between the lines to find out something that the author did not add in. In a book called Sign Of The Beaver the author had done this.
