Outlining; Song Piece

16 Mar

This week we will be in the computer lab a206 on Thursday and Friday.  On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I will briefly give notes on outlining, intro paragraphs and conclusion paragraphs, respectively.  That should take less than 10 minutes and the rest of the class you will have time to work on the following…

Outlining Your Research Paper

Today there will be some brief notes about outlining (found in your packet).  An outline is just a plan on what each paragraph in your paper will be about, and the evidence you plan to use.  For your intro, simply write down your thesis.  Then for each body paragraph, write down the topic you wish to discuss and any evidence from the poem and articles that you can use to support that idea.

Outlines are Due Next Monday!

Song Piece

During this week, research paper work has been slowed slightly to work on a Song Piece.  For this piece you will choose any song and show why that song is important to you.  The notes and requirements are here Song Piece Overview.

Song Piece is Due Friday!

Don’t Fall Behind!

At this point, you should have:

  • A Poem you will be writing about
  • Thesis statement about a theme in your poem
  • Articles about your poem or topic your thesis is discussing
  • Some notes/highlights on your article (pick out what you plan to use in your paper)

Here is a calendar to help you organize March 2015
