Editorial Essay

The Editorial Essay consisted of choosing a specific topic and choosing a side to defend. We had to develop multiple reasons to back up our thesis and try to convince the reader to agree with our side of the argument.
Summary 1

For this assignment, we picked an article then made an I-chart. With the information from our chart we created a summary of the article. I chose to read "The Ugly Truth About Beauty."
