We first began the hour by completing an essay debrief BW in our notebooks in which we responded to the following questions: 1. Explain the collaborative essay process. How did it go for your team and for you? 2. What was easier or more difficult about the individual essay process (or if you haven’t taken it, which will be more difficult/easy do you think?)? Which did you feel more prepared for and why? 3. Why might I consider analysis (development and depth of) to be the most important/necessary component of your essay writing? What purpose does it serve?
Afterwards, we read our SSR books for about 25 minutes before beginning this comma rule work using our SSR books for third hour and beginning the documentary Blackfish for fourth hour. Here’s a brief Power Point that details the Blackfish v. Seaworld controversy along with linked arguments against the documentary.
