Day 11

English 101 Day 11

  1. BP?
  2. Thesis Statements—write them on the board.
  3. Groups of six
  4. Warnings
  5. Exodus
  6. Recovery
    1. Narrow, arguable, roadmap.
    2. Mine:
      1. 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.
  7. Thesis statements

Rough Draft Due Wednesday.

Bring 4 copies.

the maps that were posted are awesome!!! my favorite part is being able to actually look at the roads in the different cities. it really helps me get a visual of what things should look like on nice days in the worst hard times.
