 Welcome back and happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing holiday break, and are now ready to hit the ground running this last semester! This week we will start learning about argument writing. We will focus this week on debates and analyzing argurments. We beleive that if a student can analyze a well written argument then they can write their own argument paper. In order to learn new vocabulary words, we will have a quiz on the following words Thursday 1/11: Delineate, evaulate, assess, relevant, irrelevant, sufficient, and claim. As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns!
