English 10 - We have been working really hard on the researching aspect of our essays.  The last two days were spent in the computer lab finding reliable resources for our research essays.  Tomorrow, you will have class time to highlight your information.  This is similar to the close readings that you have become used to.  On Thursday, I will do a homework check.  All information must be highlighted at that time.
