Today we went time working on the intro paragraph to our synthesis paper. We did a musical chairs type activity where we got to grade one other person's intro. We got a little bit of help with quotations as well. We also had time to work on our first body paragraph.
Things to keep in mind: keep quotations proper, strong word choice, don't say explain a quote by saying "This quote says" or "the speaker is saying" etc. NO PERSONAL PRONOUNS!
