Create a rough draft in outline form using this format:
Write out your introductory paragraph.
Create a loose outline of your “meat” ¶s in this manner:
Skip a line from your intro. ¶
Identify the “theme”/thesis of this first “meat” ¶ [underline or highlight it]
Indent bullets listing all facts/doc. info. and other “o.i.”s that you will need in that ¶
When done with that ¶, skip a line and do the same for the other “meat” ¶s
Skip a line after your last “meat” ¶ and write you concluding ¶ out in full.
Bring your outline into class tomorrow and I will divide the class up into small “peer review” groups.
You will then read over the outlines of the other group members and make suggestions/corrections IN A CONSTRUCTIVE MANNER.
