Hello October

We welcomed this new month of October with a quick review and quiz over “Vocabulary from Classical Roots” Book C, lesson 4.  Thereafter, we discussed any issues arising from the writing of each student’s introductions for their argumentative essays.  Most students were concerned about the format, how to address both sides of an argument, and how to decide which side of an argument to support while writing.  I offered some personalized advice and examples depending on each student’s individual situation.  In each class I also took a moment to re-hash how I would go about the writing process as a guide for students who may be feeling a little stuck.
