You missed two valuable lessons today. :( The first is related to the argumentative essay. For homework, please read in your textbook pages 355-366. We took notes on the back of the essay directions these details. Please do the same: 1. Type of topics NOT to choose (page 356). 2. What it means to qualify a claim (page 357). 3. Definition of a reason for your paper (also called a "point"). What word can you use to identify the reason? (pages 358-359) 4. Type of evidence to support your reasons (List the sub-sections starting on page 359.)
I also distributed a handout of irregular verbs to learn for the quiz on Friday. I will give you a hard copy when you return to class. You'd do well to look through the list on this website tonight, however, since the quiz is soon. See the Handouts, Etc., tab.
