APSEM 3/26 and 3/27


Here’s what you’ll need to do while I’m gone on Tuesday (and what to have for Thursday).

Read Kate Turabian’s “Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers” – I’ll leave them out for you. Read the following sections, starting on p. 77:

In your Google Doc for your outline, for each section write down at least one piece of advice/takeaway that you can use to help you write your first draft.

By Thursday, you should have your first 800 to 1,000 words of your rough draft in a Google Doc (the same on as your outline, or a different on, whatever’s easier) and sent to me. Use slide #6 in this power point to help you get started.

UPDATED: APSEM note cards and outline 3/23


Here’s the power point from this week on outlines, structure and note cards. Only look at the first five slides: Notecard your evidence

For clarity’s sake: by midnight Sunday you should send me a google docs link to your full outline, marked up with the labels we’ve been using in class (Roman numerals for headings, capital letters for sub-headings, lower case letters for claims, Arabic numerals for evidence). You should come to class on Monday with all of your sources note carded according to the style in the power point. Email me with any questions.


American Literature 3/6/18 Homework

Read in you books to page 46 (the end of act 1) for Friday and answer the following questions:

  • Why do you think Parris and Hale believe the girls?
  • Do you think the girls planned this whole thing out?

Be prepared to talk about them first thing in class.
