Descriptive process essay and skimming and scanning reading technique

What we did in class, today – After discussing strong thesis statements for process essays, students completed Activity 6 (p. 84). Then, we turned our attention to transitions and connectors (pp. 84-88). Next, we worked on editing an essay for grammar (pp. 91-94). Finally, we completed an Achieve3000 reading as Reading 4 to practice skimming and scanning for answers.

Check your marks in SIS – Marks for Thought Question 1 and Readings 1-3 are in SIS. If a mistake has been made, please notify me within 48 hours. Otherwise, the grade will not be changed.
