January 27: A Day

Outlining an Essay.

1. Students added one more quote to their idea charts.

2. Students received their group thesis statement back with some revisions.

3. As a group, we looked at W8: Basic Essay Outline. Then, groups worked on coming up with common topic sentences to support their thesis. This took the majority of class.

HW: Write an ACE-IT paragraph proving the topic sentence assigned to you off of W8. You must use one piece of evidence from the novel. Have too much to say for one paragraph? No problem! Make it two paragraphs!

Turn this paragraph in to the box on Wednesday morning.
