Today was the final work day on our persuasion papers. They will be due tomorrow at the beginning of the hour or they are late. Here is the entry with the link to the example persuasion paper from last week.

Revisions for today:

  • Make sure each body paragraph (2-5) begins with a topic sentence. Something simple (i.e. One piece of evidence that supports… Another piece of evidence that supports…A final piece of evidence that supports… Opponents of the argument might say…)
  • Make sure you have complete paragraphs that describe why the evidence you’ve selected supports your claim.
  • Introduce your evidence in the introduction. Remember that there is a model paper available on CRWashPhillips.com
  • Remind us of what you’ve said in the conclusion. Repeat your thesis and re-summarize your evidence and counterclaim.
  • When you finish print the paper. It’s due at the beginning of the hour tomorrow. (No late punches, 10% off each day late.)
  • Don’t forget your parenthetical citations and works cited page at the end.

Reminder: The Iowa Assessments begin tomorrow at 8 a.m. Make sure you’re in your homeroom on time tomorrow!
