On the last day of the break, we had one last day of practice with citations. This time, we worked only on in-text citation. The assignment was to read 1 of the following:
Article 1: Plugged-In Over Preppy: Teenagers Favor Tech Over Clothes
Short Story: The Last Night of the World
Article 2: How Google Is Quietly Taking Over
After reading, write one paragraph summarizing the article or story and one paragraph responding the the article or story. Each paragraph should be at least 5 sentences in length. Use at least 2 in-text parenthetical citations over the course of the 2 paragraphs.
Have a wonderful break!
