9B Paragraphing and Stuff

Hey Guys,

Attached are files of the color-coded paragraph sheet, the Frankenstein essay with specific transitions and what not highlighted with notes, a copy of the paper outline sheet just in case you feel as though you need help with gaining more direction, and the introduction and conclusion sheet.

Also If you realized that you needed a book and didn’t grab one if you look down to the post that says for 9B AP kids there is a link to a pdf version of the book, the page numbers are slightly off but it is the same text. So use that if you need it.

Email me if you have any issues or questions: jboyar@clarku.edu

 

9B at AP homework for the weekend

I hope your AP test went okay.

Bellow the link titled “Paragraphing” is a word document. The document is a graphic organizer with an explanation and example of a paragraph that is color coded. On the other side is the graphic organizer. If your group came up with a thesis statement using a theme on Thursday then use that thesis to make a paragraph (at the bottom the jessporter link is a link to a pdf of the book they are almost the same page numbers as the version we use in class. You guys have read through chapter 3).

If your group didn’t make a thesis statement then make one using one of the themes that your group talked about on Thursday. Below is a slide about how to make a thesis to help you (Thesis Statements).

Please bring this is on Monday
