9th Lit Assignment/Work over the break

9th Lit: Your sole required assignment over the break is to come up with your claim for your argumentative essay and brainstorm 3 pieces of evidence to support your claim.

Your essay prompt is to argue which path is the best to take after high school: 4-year college, 2-year college, trade/tech school, entrepreneurship, or military.

Your claim and evidence need to be written down on the graphic organizer I passed out in class today. I’m attaching a copy here for those students who were absent.

If you would like, you have the opportunity to revise your short stories for a better grade. You must follow these steps:

  1. Email me or Ms. Mapp (if you are in 2nd block), and let one of us know that you would like us to edit your story again.
  2. Copy and paste your story from Google Docs into a Microsoft Word document. (This will assist with grammar, punctuation, and spelling mistakes not caught by Google Docs)
  3. Print your final draft to bring in on Monday when we get back, or save to a flash drive or your email so we can print at school.


Please, if you have any questions at all, email me! I can’t help if I don’t know there is a problem. Have a great break!!!
