Then on Tuesday, we're going to take an analytical look at the synthesis essay that we wrote last week. You're already familiar with the question, but it might not hurt to take another look at it and read through the sample essays.
In small groups, we'll sift through the student responses and look at the commentaries. Take notes on your group discussion. When you get home, go on your blog and reflect on what exactly the synthetic essay is asking you to do and what you need to remember to be successful.
Finally, for homework you’ll take the following Synthesis Question 2 prompt and blog it completely for Friday December 14th.
