Today you will start writing your rough draft for your Compare/Contrast essay. It is a 100 point homework grade, and is due at the end of Thursday's class.
You will follow your outline as you begin writing. I will hand these back today. If you need to look at the outline format, you can find the document here.
A rubric for the paper can be found here. It will tell you EXACTLY what needs to be included in your paper. If you follow this rubric, you will get a fantastic grade!
Before the end of this class period, you need to show me your thesis. A complete, approved thesis gets you a 5 point homework grade.
Final drafts for these papers are due next Wednesday, December 7, 2011. They are 100 point project grades.
