AGENDA 10/31


Examine sample papers: Clare's paper on Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill Affair
Mari's paper on Japanese American Internment

Discuss features of each paper:
What is the hook? How does each student writer engage the reader?
What is the thesis? How does each student writer explain the different discourse communities, the lasting emotions of the event, and the overall impact of the event on society?
How are body paragraphs organized? What kinds of details does the student writer give about each source?
How does the student writer discuss appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos?
What does the conclusion suggest about the lasting impact of this event?

HW: Bring ALL of your research sources to class tomorrow!
