Happy Week Before Spring Break

Sorry for the delay on the announcement, but I've been working to get caught up on grading and giving all of my students feedback on their writing. This week we will be looking at some aspects of working with research, how to evaluate sources, and use them in our essays. There are a few activities, but the main goal this week is to continue working on your Personal Essays they are due the 27th. In the past this assignment has been a little tricky, so don't hesitate to ask me for help or advice!
