TKW Essay

In the morning class we shared Initial Planning Sheeting. Homework is develop an outline for the essay and bring in a fast draft of the essay so we can find evidence from the text.

The essay is to be 500-750 words (English 201 B write the longer essay). This does not include the works cited. We might present the essays in class if we have time (smile).

A more polished draft is due Monday, October 18. The final draft is due on Tuesday, October 19. We will meet in A-232 for a peer review. Students will turn the essays in with comments, planning and reading logs, cyber-assignments.

I might let students submit the essays via the Internet at I haven't decided yet, but this will save on paper (trees).

Keep going in SPHE, part five: Point of View. We will write the POV essay Thursday, October 22. It is due Monday, October 25.

Book Report Essay
Start looking for a book you'd like to read for the book report essay. the author needs to be 25 or younger and live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Start bringing in books for consideration this week and next. The essay will be due early November. Students will also give a book talk.
