Here are the prompts for your 5 paragraph essays.  We will go over the handouts as well as the expectations in class.  Papers will be due on Wednesday of next week.  Please utilize peer editing (mom, dad, sister, aunt, etc.) as well as proof reading (you) strategies before formulating your FINAL draft.  This paper will be graded on two levels.  1) Content-did you answer the prompt?  Did you defend your position?  Did you find proof from the text?  2) Conventions- Spelling, grammar, subject-verb agreement, fragments, run-ons.  Please email me if you have questions!
