By Friday, September 2 at 11.59 PM, please send me an email telling me which essay you would like to write your first paper on. I will tally up the votes and let you no later than Monday, September 5 which essay “wins”. We will then all write on that essay. Please print out a hard copy, re-read it, and bring it to class on Tuesday, September 6.
Please write your Warm-Up paper, save it on your computer, and bring the computer to class. I will take ten minutes during class to help you format your paper in MLA, which is how you will submit every paper.
As usual, if you have questions, shoot me an email.
