Essay Video Lessons

In our class, we are now working on writing argument papers on a variety of topics.  Students have crafted thesis statements and are using Achieve3000 to do their research. You have also gotten back your PE essay and these videos are designed to help address some of the issues we saw repeated in many of the essays.

In class, you'll decide which video your group will watch first and then answer some questions in your composition book.  Here are the links to the videos.
