I'd like to start off by thanking those of you that have already emailed me a draft of your essay. It looks like a majority of you are on the right track.
When I look over your essays I'm looking for specific things- things we've discussed in class and that have been included in DOZENS of handouts. The biggest is to follow the format!
For your body paragraphs:
1. Utilize a transition word or phrase that leads into your topic sentence.
2. State your argument- it can be as simple as "After initially seeming to be a loyal friend, the Nurse proves to be disloyal to Juliet."
3. Provide me with CONTEXTUAL evidence (as in from the book!) that proves your argument to be true.
4. Analyze the quote- explain to me in detail how that quote proves your argument to be true. (There is an entire handout on this!)
Let's break it down rubric style:
Hope my tips have helped. Please adhere to the Sunday 5pm deadline!
