Our cloze activity took longer than it has in the past and with the shortened periods we didn’t get to the more in depth discussion on the essay. That will now happen tomorrow. Think about the essay prompts a bit tonight and bring your thoughts, insights, and questions to class for our discussion.
If you are going on the band trip, re-read the essay in light of the question that appeals to you most, thinking about how the essay makes that particular argument. Think through your position on the issue on which that prompt focuses. Then start forming your argument, keeping in mind our readings from Everything’s an Argument, including Toulmin.
