Sutton - 2nd period Quote Project

"Stop Doing These 8 Things for your Teens this School Year" assignment:
  • Write an introduction with your thesis--full paragraph (3-5 sentences) which identifies the article and the author
  • For at least TWO body paragraphs, identify your topic sentence (which supports your thesis), followed by details and a quote from the article to support your topic sentence (these can be done in bulleted point format). This is your evidence! Do this twice, making sure your topic sentences support your thesis and will steer your paragraphs.
  • Write a full out conclusion which restates your ideas--DO NOT start with "In conclusion"!
  • You may write out entire paper, or do it in an outline format for the two body paragraphs.
