Today’s class

  1. Remember, remember, the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.
  2. Write an outline for your essay:
    1. Title – (check: does it express your position about the topic?)
    2. Thesis statement -(check:  Is it in the first paragraph? Does it summarize your arguments?)
    3. 1st counter-argument and argument
    4. 2nd counter-argument and argument
    5. 3rd counter-argument and argument
    6. Conclusion – (check: does it repeat the introduction and thesis statement? No new information in the conclusion.)
  3. In groups of 4, choose one of the quotes from the handout (#4, #5, & #6 are one set), and translate it into Japanese. Click here to download the handout: analyzing_political_comments
