Day 11

English 101 Day 11

  1. Wait a day or two for GoW reading schedule revision. You can start reading of course, but the schedule will change. We will read the whole book, so feel free to read ahead.
  1. BP: 10 points towards your 40% score or 1 abs for each.

    1. On the Road/Big Read Calendar

  2. Thesis Statements
    1. Narrow, arguable, roadmap.

    2. Why are we interested in the Dust Bowl now? The most direct reason is so we can understand the events surrounding the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Like the Dust Bowl, Katrina was a natural disaster made worse by our failure to heed warnings. Secondly, as a result of the disaster, hundreds of thousands of people were uprooted from their homes. Finally, both areas have been undergoing extensive restoration in order to bring it back to where it was.

  3. Organization
  4. Intros and Conclusions

Rough Draft Due Tomorrow.

Bring 4 copies.
