September 7 Lecture Notes : Historical Timeline

Essay 1: Please take the time to view two exemplary essays to come out of Assignment 1. The writers of these essays participated fully in the writing process. They submitted their initial essays on September 12, received comments back, revised the essay, and resubmitted on October 19. Both essays attain excellence in every respect: grammar and syntax; MLA format; and argumentation (thesis articulation; claims, evidence, and close reading; and logical progression). Both essays earned a grade of solid A. Congratulations to both writers.
