Breaking Down an Essay Prompt
Today we learned the basics of how to break down an essay prompt for better understanding. We looked at an example first and then did number one of the practice together. You then completed numbers 2-5 on your own. This is due in class tomorrow because we will review together to make sure we all have something similar. You can find a copy of this handout in the absent bin or at the link below.
Finish the assignment above.
