I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
We started with 10 minutes of reading and then switched to working on the research papers. Our revision focus today was integration and introduction of quotes into student sentences. We referred to page 8 in the Writer's Reference guide, noted which method worked best with certain quote "situations," modeled some revisions, and then students worked on their own revisions with teacher guidance and group input. We also ran a quick demo to learn how to use the SAS Writing Reviser as a final revision "check" tonight for homework. The instructions are posted on Canvas in the Research Project module. Last, we did return to poetry analysis -- briefly. I shared a handout with students listing poetic, rhetorical, and literary devices that they should "observe" in the poems that we analyze, and we practiced those as a whole class using the "Butterfly" poem as a model.
Homework: 1. Finish revising quote introductions in your 2 body paragraphs.
2. Use the SAS Writing Reviser and complete a final "check" of your BPs.
3. Finalize the Works Cited page.
