Honors 11: Essay Body Paragraph Work

We first watched a couple clips from The Yes Men Fix the World in case something might spark some ideas or might be of use to some of you. These specific clips dealt with Dow’s chemical disaster in Bhopal, India in 1984. We then worked in groups to edit/assist each other regarding our first body paragraph. Here’s the critical relationship work if needed (I still have your work you did with it, so I’m attaching the strategies).

Homework: Update previously submitted essay components (intro and first body paragraph) + write a 2nd body paragraph that works to evolve your claim from the previous paragraph. Don’t forget the sample essay in yesterday’s post as a guide. There have been some changes regarding its concision. Consider employing your own editing “delete key.” 🙂

Here’s the PowerPoint of assistance/guiding help I mentioned.
