Week of December 18th

We are in the homestretch before winter break! All classes will continue working on their argumentative essays this week and will have access to the ChromeBooks to type, revise and edit. This essay is due Wednesday, January 3rd. The essay must be finished and printed by the start of class that day.

English 7
We will spend all classes Monday through Thursday working on our argumentative essays.
On Wednesday, you will receive notes on how to cite your source(s) appropriately. This will be factored into your final grade for the essay and it will help you avoid plagiarism, so it is important that we do it correctly.

On Thursday, we will review information for the hook/attention grabber of the paper as well as what is necessary for a strong conclusion.

Any work not completed on your paper by Thursday must be completed over winter break. If you would like a pass to continue working in the library on your Academic Prep, please see me before Thursday.

Friday is a half-day and students will spend it participating in activities. We will not be working on our papers on Friday.

Homework
Essay due (typed and printed) on Wednesday, January 3rd.
