This week, we began our class novel, War of the Worlds, and we continued working on the argumentative essays.
The homework from the first class this week was to read chapters 1-3 of War of the Worlds and complete the response questions for the chapter (attached below).
In the second class of this week, I went over some important aspects of argumentative essay writing (resources attached below). Then I went over your homework.
