We began class by looking at the blog and discussing the blog question from last week–potential community projects and mentors. We then talked about several aspects of the research paper, including the following:
Format: Title page, outline, text, and Works Cited page
Introductions and Conclusions
I’ve placed a link on this blog for an example of a paper in correct MLA format. Please refer to this example to make sure your paper is on the right track. Rough drafts are due this Friday. Wednesday will be an extra day for you to work on completing your draft.
I distributed copies of Macbeth to everyone. We then read Scene 1 and talked about the theme, setting, and mood. Tomorrow, we’ll move on to Scenes 2, 3, and 4.
I ended class with time for questions about the final outlines and the research paper. See you all tomorrow!
Be sure to respond to the new discussion question on the blog by Sunday, February 17. Thanks.
