R&W: Thesis Mini-Lesson + Drafting

We were in the library again today. Your first job is to look through the thesis mini-lesson PowerPoint before beginning to outline and/or draft your essay. The first draft of your essay is due Thursday for peer editing (summative point value). You should have between 2-3 pages at that point. We will spend today and tomorrow drafting. Wednesday we will be in the classroom to look at a sample essay. We will also have the opportunity on Wednesday to do APA quiz corrections. Here’s an APA paper template to get you started as well as a link to the sample papers in this post. This site also gives helpful info. regarding formatting academic papers in Google Docs (APA info. begins on page 7 and ends on page 10). This YouTube video also explains the process for Google Docs.
