Since we are writing our first formal essay this week, please review the following PowerPoints and videos below on my expectations of your essays and suggestion on writing in general. This is adding to the information we have already worked through about PIE paragraph structure and writing a thesis statement.
STEP TWO: Answering the following questions in a journal.
The materials you have reviewed will come in handy when you begin writing Essay 1.
For now, I just want you to reflect a little bit on what you have read so far. Please answer the following questions:
- What is your previous experience writing essay or essay format? (no worries if it is nothing).
- What were at least three takeaways or AHA moments did you have reviewing the lecture? What do you to make sure to remember when you craft your first draft for Project 1?
- Did you prefer the power point presentation or the videos? Which helped you understand better? Why?
- Do you have any questions for me about the materials provided?
- Please respond in a full paragraph (5-7 sentences) for question 1 and 2. Question 3 can be a short answer (2-3 sentences). Question 4 is optional.
