Class notes for 3/24/06

Today in class we started with a warm-up. This warm-up was; Why is it necessary to write clear and focused statements? Students then read and discussed the necessity of writing clear and focused statements on pg. 231. An opinion statement names the problem and proposes a solution. Students will use the following formula to write an opinion statement. Students will see the example of a completed Organized List for a persuasive essay. We then used the following directions to guide them in generating an organized list for their essay:
