Thursday, 12/3

Students reviewed the scoring guidelines for the Buy Nothing Day essay from last class and scored their own essays. We reviewed words and sentence frames for arguments, and everyone revised two of the four paragraphs from that same essay, and turned everything back in. Students then pivoted to preparations for Monday’s Socratic seminar on Nickel and Dimed, including filling out a third conclusion/support/yes/but handout for the “Minnesota” chapter. I also prompted everyone for questions they should write up in advance of Monday’s seminar. Homework: finish preparing for the seminar; also, all late novel and TIB essays must be turned in by 12/17.
