American Literature 28/4 – Research Project Prompt

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, I cannot be here for class today, so Mr. Shulkin will jump in and help you with your writing if needed.

Please work on crafting your first chapter. Remember, you want to go from broad to narrow. This is not the introduction but the first chapter of the body part of your essay. Be specific, choose an aspect of your interest that you can closely analyze by applying your lens to it. We will be working on the introduction next week.

At the end of class, please have a possible thesis statement for your work and a table of contents printed out to hand in.

Bring you first chapter to class on Monday.

Seniors – starting your gateways

Hi seniors,

In case you missed senior seminar today or had to leave early, this will get you up to speed. Watch the video, go through the four steps, and next week come to seminar with your story written out – it should only be about a page and a half or so. It’s a rough outline for your gateway presentation. We’ll add the other details later on. Don’t worry about filling out the grids on the last two pages yet.

Here you go: Gateway planner packet
