What we did in class, today – SStudents wrote the counterargument/refutation and conclusion paragraphs for Essay 3. We peer-reviewed each other’s papers. We ended the class by writing Thought Question 5. Everyone who used the assigned thesis sentence and topic sentences, as well as writing at least 450 words, received credit.

Essay 2 – Essay 2 has been marked. Please listen to my comments in Turnitin and check that I’ve entered the correct mark in SIS. (Let me know within two days if I have made an error.) Students who have not submitted Essay 2 have until Wednesday, Dec. 2, to bring me their essay saved on a flash memory.
