Today in class, we discussed the "Vamping" article and the short film, "The Black Hole," from the homework packet.
Next, I handed back the rough drafts of the "Happiness" essays. Based on some common issues I found in the rough drafts, I developed a packet of resources to help with your final drafts. These issues mainly centered around the following:
-Using MLA formatting throughout your paper
-Properly citing your sources in the text of your essay and in a Works Cited page
-Writing strong body paragraphs
The following resources were handed out to help you with these issues:
To reiterate, these are resources to help you. They are not assignments. The only homework for tomorrow is to make sure your rough draft is ready to be shared with other students during our peer critique session next class.
