In class this week we have been working on a literary essay on The Outsiders. In each class you have been expected to complete one or two steps of the essay writing process, and so far you have chosen your topic, organized your ideas, written a thesis statement, found evidence to support your arguments, written an introduction and learned how to include in-text citations. If you've missed any of these steps, please see me. Homework for Thursday is to have your introduction completed. Thursday and Friday's classes will be used for completing the body paragraph and writing the conclusion. The final essay will be due on Wednesday, March 18.
