Today, we practiced identifying Leads in sample introduction paragraphs. Then, we started practicing writing our own introductory paragraphs using some of the different lead types.  Your paragraph is due on Tuesday, 12/16 (A day classes) and Wednesday, 12/17 (B day classes).   Use the slides below to help you draft your own.

Research for your Position Paper

In class, we recently used Achieve3000 to research many different issues.  You needed to do the activity questions for at least one article listed here.  However, you need to read at least two articles in your topic area to find evidence and reasons to support your position.

 After you do your research, take notes, and complete an activity (8 questions), then make be prepared to turn this sticky note  in to your teacher (if you didn't already turn it in.)
