MLA | Responding to Texts
Goals for this Week
What is the author's purpose? What are they really saying? How does it connect to what you are trying to say?
Our lessons this week will deal with MLA formatting and responding to texts in the form of content as well as quotations. In addition, we have a short grammar lesson/practice on fused sentences.
Your graded homework will be an example of how you've used the lessons to enhance the way you respond to texts, like the essay provided.
