Monday 18 Sept- English 9 SWS

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.
