Happy Friday, Everyone!
Today in class we will be finishing up our Monarch notes packet from yesterday, and then starting on a thesis writing project.
Eventually, you will be asked to write a persuasive essay on a historical topic, but first, you need to learn about the various parts of an essay before you put it all together. Therefore, we will be practicing the pre-writing skill of creating an outline and including a strong thesis statement.
I have shared the assignment and outline structure with students via Google Docs. The powerpoint with thesis examples is listed below. Monday will be a work-day to to complete this assignment. Please let me know if you have any questions!
