Today you will need to finish and print your first draft of your essay. Please staple in the following order:
1. Essay (top)
2. Venn Diagram (middle)
3. Article (bottom)
After you have stapled these together, please leave it with me. When I am available, I will call you up to meet and work on making your essay even better! When you finish, you are free to do the following:
1. Go to the library
2. Study for Civics
3. Work on your project timeline (Presentations will begin January 9th).
Please continue to work on the above-mentioned work. If you finish, it will be on your own work time. Be certain to come prepared. If you were peer editing this morning, you will finish that. If you have not yet been assigned a buddy for peer editing and have turned in your first draft, I will assign you a buddy. If you have not yet finished your first draft, this will be due today.
