Today I gave students a handout on transitions that can be used in expository essays. If you weren’t here, please come pick up a copy from me.

We also discussed the documented hero essay (due February 2) and went over the rubric.

Students then explored Google Scholar to find more sources for their essays, and used the following notes page to record the information they found. research- note taking form

As a reminder, CMC reading guide 5 is due tomorrow. Students also need to make sure to bring their two notes pages and their laptops so we can continue working on their papers tomorrow.
