All Boys, All Blogged: February 19, 2015

Focus: How can we start our essays in a way that makes the reader want to read on?

1. Warming up: Taming a sample bad introduction into shape

2. Exploring a few excellent introductions

3. Composing your own introductions and editing them using the official rubric

4. Revising your introductions and using SAS writing reviser to help with style and clarity throughout your entire essay

1. Compose a rough draft of a conclusion paragraph by tomorrow. Your entire rough draft will then be complete!

2. Bring your banned book to class tomorrow for some reading time.

3. In case you need a reminder...

Here is the official essay timeline:

Tuesday, Feb 17: Complete first body paragraph due

Wednesday, Feb 18: Complete second body paragraph due by the end of class

Thursday, Feb 19: Introduction due by the end of class

Friday: Feb 20: Conclusion due by the beginning of class; entire rough draft should be complete. Submit it to the "Macbeth Rough Draft" folder in by 3:00 pm.
