Elaboration and Conclusions

Last week, we learned how to elaborate our body paragraphs. We taught five types of support. After providing time in class, we collected one revised body paragraph. Some of you took your paragraph home to finish it. It is a grade, so don't forget to turn it in.
This week, we are revising our conclusions. P.E.P.I is the acronym we use to help us write a "peppy" conclusion. It stands for prediction, echo, pointed question, and instruction to the reader. Again, if you take your conclusion home don't forget to turn it in next time we see you.
Rubrics for both assignments are available in class.
