Friday, December 2nd

Goals: To learn to create a works cited page.  To learn to introduce sources properly in our writing. To begin writing our informational essays.


1) Introducing sources (keep this handout forever)

2) Creating a works cited page-Once you have created your works cited page on a Google doc, you will have to COPY AND PASTE it onto the last page of your essay. The only thing on your works cited page should be your WORKS CITED, not any part of your essay. Remember that you have to cite sources for graphics too!

3) Work on essays. Make sure to look at RUBRIC in BEFORE you press submit.


NO AOW this week. Who Made That essay is due on Tuesday night by 10PM. Earlier is better for me!

In your essay:

1) Look at examples again (in my blog posts). Your job is to inform AND entertain. Use your own words unless quoting.
2) Make sure to have a good hook!
3) Let your personality and voice shine through. Remember your audience! Use your best vocabulary.
4) Focus on how the item came about and evolved over time
5) End with a bang!  
6) Proofread carefully
7) 1 1/2 to 2 pages
8) Pictures are great
9) Introduce sources using the handout I provided!
9) Works cited page
