Today in class, we had a peer critique session in which students read and reviewed the essays of two other students and had their own essays read and reviewed by two students.
Over the weekend, please work on developing your rough drafts into final drafts. This means:
-Complete a works cited page
-Make sure you have in-text citations in your essay whenever you used outside information
-Use MLA formatting throughout (see handout from last class)
-Clean up any grammatical errors
Next class, we will have a work-period during which you can ask me any last questions about your essay. So, come to class with any questions you have ("How do I format a works cited page"? etc.). The actual final draft of your paper is not due until the second class next week.
Have a nice weekend.
