First test today! Hope it's going well! I am awake now for a little bit so I'm going to be making commentary on your practice essays. I will post my comments by your student ID# by Thursday afternoon so you can look them over as you prepare for Friday's in-class essay. Just as a reminder, on Friday you will have 5 minutes prep and plan time after you see the question. Use this time to brainstorm on the question sheet and get to the point of having a thesis ready to go. You will then have 35 minutes writing time. You only need TWO main points for full credit, but please DO NOT attempt more than three main points for your argument. Conclusion paragraphs are not scored, so if you run short on time, you can drop that. I'll post the grading rubric we will be using tomorrow as well.
Tonight, don't forget, you should finish your notes on Chapter 10 (the next few weeks the chapters are out of order! Check the calendar on this website!). If you have any questions, email me or message me on Twitter! Anything else important that comes up, I will post here, Twitter, and SnapChat! :)
