All students have shown me an outline (or at least a partial outline) for their major essays. This was due May 6th.
Now students should be writing the first draft of their essay, using the same checklist as the outline, as well as the self-assessment page. (See attached documents below.)
Students will have class time on Tuesday, May 24th and Wednesday, May 25th to work on this, but they should definitely not be STARTING their essays on those days!
