Every ZOOM meeting ever...
This Week's Warm Read is EASY
I had the chance to see and talk to many of you yesterday, and it really made me smile. I have missed y'all. I will schedule more ZOOMs soon. Today, I just need more research to happen. You should be starting to get an idea of what you are going to say. I was able to help a few people yesterday to broaden or narrow their topics. You think to think in terms of threes. What are three main points you can make about your topic? The format that we will use for our paper is just a five-paragraph essay on steroids. While I know that many of you can write without using a standard format like that-- the point is to give you something you can fall back on later when the topic is more complicated or you are stuck and not sure what to do. (Trying to give you a crutch for when a college class leaves you baffled and not sure what to do next.) I am going to basically leave you alone to work today. Please, please, please don't drag your feet. I am looking to finish up this paper by the end of the week or middle of next week. Throughout the day today I will be adding information about thesis writing and creating the outline, but from yesterday's conversations- it seems like y'all are not really ready for those steps. So, today-- just research and make notes. Nothing is due yet.
