Grades will be earned today on the sources listed and note cards made in Noodle Tools; in addition, students will show the highlighting of the Works Cited page and Day Two Handout for a third grade.

Step 1 – Students will highlight each different source in a color of his or her choosing, similar to how we numbered them after printing Friday; afterward, students will highlight each concrete detail to match its source highlight color, similar to how we matched numbers Friday.  Proceed to Step 3 if not able to complete this currently.

Step 2 – Students are expected to draft the introduction to the research essay and arrive in class tomorrow with it.  Include an effective attention grabber and thesis; click Introduction and Conclusion Paragraph 2015  for the handout.  Complete Step 1 before Step 2.

Step 3 – We are returning to the computers today in order to allow anyone still needing more time a chance to finish.  Follow the directions for the Day 4 Reminders and the specifics shared in the February 5, 2016 – Finalizing Paper Post.
