By Friday, Sept 30 at 11.59 PM, post in the comments section of this blog with 1) one point that your group came up with, written as a full sentence, 2) whether this point is with or against the grain, and 3) a link to a supporting source. (To create the link, simply copy the URL and paste it into the comments section.) Note: The first comment posted is a great example of what you’re supposed to do! Model your comment after that one, and you should be good to go. 🙂
Then, select four points you’d like to write about for Paper #1: two with the grain & two against the grain. Write your points on the Writing Plan handout, as complete sentences. Also, write at least one relevant quotation from one of your sources to illustrate or support each point. (You will have four points and four quotations total.)
Read the “Paragraphing: MEAL Plan”. (This is a single page long. It shouldn’t be too onerous!) In your homework notebooks, write an answer to the prompt: In high school, you may have learned to start paragraphs with topic sentences. In what way(s) is the information in this handout similar to that instruction? In what way(s) is the information different? Turn your homework notebook in during class.
