Last week you should have chosen your project. If you need a paper copy please let me know. Today you will begin to make a To-Do list for your project. Each group will turn this into me today for inspection, and I will return it. You will work on completing the items on your list throughout the day. This list should be a google doc that you share with me. Make sure you put your names in the title of the doc.
I will conference with each group before the day begins and near the end of class to monitor progress on your projects.
Continue to research your facts and figures for your position paper. You need to back up your opinions with real facts and figures. Keep the 1st person stories to a minimum. Remember, you are trying to pursuade me to believe in whatever position you either suppport or oppose.
Make sure as you work on your paper that it has follows grammar rules.
Looking ahead to next week (week of the 22), you should have shored up your position. Mr. Shoemaker will be the Devil's Advocate, and will challenge your position. Be ready to defend your position with your facts and figures from your research.
