Monday, Oct. 13: Today we used our thesis statement graphic organizers to guide us as we created a formal outline on our research topics. If you need extra time to do your outline, please consider coming to Extra Help Friday this week, as your teacher will be there to assist you in creating your outline.
Tuesday, Oct. 14: Today we used our outlines to create a first draft of the research paper. Remember when you write your research paper that you must use at least one quote from an online resource, at least one quote from a hard-bound book, and at least one quote from World Book Encyclopedia. The quotes need to be worded exactly the way the original source phrased them.
Wednesday, Oct. 15: Today we started self-editing and peer editing of our research papers’ first drafts. If you were gone today, make sure you do some self-editing and peer editing. By the time we turn in our final drafts, the first draft needs to have at least 20 actual proofreading symbols that make sense, in order to earn full credit.
