Friday, September 14th, 2012 Recap

Friday brought the completion of our discussion of thesis statements, hooks, and how to use them to build a strong introduction paragraph.  We then had a discussion centered around the topic below:

  • When is it okay for someone to step in and resolve an issue between two people?  What if they are countries?

In addition to discussion concerning fights in school the topic of Tuesday’s attack on the American Consulate in Libya came up in discussion.  Both instances provided  real-life situations from which the students could draw in order to write their BCRs.

Our usual Friday quiz has been tentatively pushed back to Monday the 17th and will address gerunds functioning as different sentence parts.

HOMEWORK: None today.

PowerPoint: 9-14-12 Finally Finishing Introductions + BCR Day
