B/C Book Paper draft due:  Tuesday, 5th and 7th periods  and Wednesday, 4th and 6th periods.

It is absolutely essential to have a PRINTED draft in class in order to participate in peer editing.


B/C Book Final Paper due Friday, January 17th.

Monday (1/13) Lesson 1

Today’s lesson and activity revolved around writing effective conclusions.  We read an article titled “Writing a Strong Conclusion Study Guide,” watched a video, looked at three sample papers; and, in groups, rewrote a thesis statement with different wording that could be used in a conclusion paragraph.  Finally, you were to rewrite your thesis/claim statement with different wording for  your own paper.
