11/14 – Vocab Test & Writing Day

Today we’ll start with an essay ambulance. As more and more of you get accepted proposals, you’re moving into the drafting phase, and here are a few of the things that are typically a problem (to avoid):

  1. Use specific details to support your paragraph.
  2. Do not write an essay. This is a letter. It means you’ll need more transitional, ethos-building language. You’ll also need some general letter patter.

You can see all these issues at once here.

Then the rest of the period is for vocabulary testing. If you finish early, you are welcome to work on your writing …OR reading LFA for tomorrow.
