Informational Writing- PS#4
Today we will finish up the rough draft of the Farming Paper with your introduction and conclusion.
When I looked at these over the weekend, I noticed many didn’t have CITATIONS! Check your work.
Also, your paper needs to look like a paper with paragraphs. Remove all of the directions and be sure it is 4 clear paragraphs. Works Cited goes at the bottom.
When you have it tidy, let one of us check it and then we will print a paper copy for editing.
Use the assignment link in Classroom. Delete the stuff that I wrote.
Make sure everything is on
Anything that was on paper, take a picture and insert it in your document.
You may take pics of long passages instead of copying them.
Use section headers to separate the different parts.
Works Cited at the end. Be sure the WC includes everything you read and is in proper MLA format.
Turn in when you are done.
Friday #25 is due tomorrow. Make sure you get this turned in. Friday #26 is posted in Classroom. It’s a check-in on your nonfiction book. This should be finished by next Friday 21 April. You may use today to finish 25, read, and/or start 26.
Pds 1&4- Tomorrow we will have notes about archetypes and literary lenses. Please bring your copy of
Lord of the Flies. Pds 2&8- Tomorrow we will begin a new class read.
Today is your last chance to work on Friday #23. Please note that this is a full 5-paragraph essay. It needs to be complete and be proofread for grammar and mechanics.
Today is the last day to work on the research final draft (due Friday). You can also use the time to finish up Friday #12.
Weekly list- Each week I will post a Padlet and a question. Add your thoughts (including your name). When I approve and post the responses, I will remove your name. Check out this week’s list below.
Paragraph structure- The focus will be on finding a topic sentence and putting supporting details in logical order.
Unsmashing paragraphs- The focus with this activity is how to divide a huge chunk of text into paragraphs.
Handouts for both activities are in Classroom.
