Just a reminder that there is no online class tomorrow. Please use the time to work on your paper. Make sure to email it to me by Tuesday at midnight.
As we discussed in class, I will be looking for a thesis and claims that aim to prove the thesis. There should be quotations from the readings that will be used as evidence, and analysis that shows the reader how the evidence proves the thesis or claim. There should be no use of second person references (you). A format that I like to see is:
CL - Claim
I - Introduce the source
QU - Quote or paraphrase the evidence
E - Explain how the evidence prove the claim
S - So what how does this all prove your thesis.
The paper needs to be a solid 2 - 2 1/2 pages of good solid writing. Try to make sure that the quotes you use really prove what you are trying to convey.
Here is the sample that I passed out last week. I have indicated the claim, evidence, analysis structure for you to see.
Here too is the spread sheet with grades so far organized by student id number. Remember a 1 is meeting expectations.
