Day 5

English 101 Day 5

The paper today.


and this.

  1. Names—Quiz
  2. Getting started on "Why Now?" question.
    1. Chapter Intro and Chapter 2 at your tables—two or three interesting things for us to look at.
    2. "Ample Warnings"?
    3. As a class
  • The essay is a compare contrast, with greater emphasis on the compare. But first we have to know what to look for. What was it like in the Southern Great Plains 1930's? Look at the forest, not the trees. Look for a thread.
  • So, essay options
    • Katrina
    • Global Warming/Climate Change
    • What else?
      • Southwest/Southeast US
      • China
      • Sub-Prime Mortgages/Housing Bubble
      • Banking Crisis

  • 3-5 pages isn't that much, so we're really looking for 3-4 similarities and maybe 1-2 differences.
