Today, we examined the work we have done on the introductory paragraph for the "sin tax / health center" prompt.  I presented the class with the model on the third slide of this presentation : /userfiles/492/my files/model intro.pptx?id=36011

Compare your paragraph with this one.  Does it "sound" like a speech?  Have you included your well-crafted thesis statement as part of the intro paragraph? Have you created a "bridge" to the rest of the speech?

Have this paragraph prepared for peer grading on Wednesday.

We then read chapter 13 of Mockingbird and took a One Question Quiz.
