Wednesday, 9/17

Today was our first day working with the Introduce, Explain, Pertain pattern for making a good argument with evidence to prove a claim. We used our notes from “Thank You, M’am” last time to fill out a power paragraph outline, which students turned in for us to grade. The last 15 minutes of class were spent reading and annotating the Kurt Vonnegut story “Souvenir.” Students will finish the story at the start of class on Friday.
