Class Minutes for Wed Nov 10th

1) Prayer

2) Class Discussion
We discussed the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" that was read for homework.

3) Mystery Envelopes
We split into eight groups and each group was given a question about "The Yellow Wallpaper". We switched so everybody was given a chance to answer each question. The answer key is posted in Moodle.

4) Compare/Contrast Thesis Statements
We compared and contrasted Oreos and Ritz crackers as a class and wrote a thesis based on the info collected. For homework we wrote two thesis statements on the short stories read in class, with loyalty and isolation as prompts. A compare/contrast thesis has three parts: one "difference statement/preview statement" about each topic, and a sentence starting with "however, both . . . " that shows a thematic link between the two items being compared.

Thanks Cara!
