Making progress on that draft

Goal: make progress understanding what you are writing about. Make progress actually writing.

Discuss the quote you are writing about with your group.
Work on adding to your draft. You have a complete draft due on Tuesday 5/2.

I suggest you discuss these things with your group:
  1. The meaning of the quote. 
  2. The extent to which you agree or disagree with what the quote says. 
  3. Possible opposing viewpoints to your positions. (What would someone who disagrees with you say?)
  4. Possible counter arguments to those opposing viewpoints. 
  5. Help each other with possible evidence to support your position. 
Self-regulate and decide for yourselves when you need to move from discussion to drafting time. 

  • Finish reading book #9. 
  • Friday 5/5 is the end of the grading period. Check your English Journal. Are you missing anything? Could any of your work be better? A little effort now can really help you later.
