So, instead, you will go to Moodle this evening and turn in what you have of an Introduction and Thesis Statement for Essay 4

I’ll see you next class.

ENGL 101.39 – 5 Day English Students

I am going to be out tomorrow, so please continue to work on crafting your Thesis Statements for Essay 4.

As it pertains to your Introductions and Summary, please work on those as well.

Introductions for this kind of Essay should make the initial set up of talking about the Author and Title of the Article, as where it came from, in your case:

Grant Morrison. “Introduction” to his book Supergods.

It would be beneifitial to introduce the reader to Grant Morrison a bit as well and perhaps some background on the publishing of Supergods (like publisher and year).

Use the link HERE and HERE to help you out with that. This last one may even serve you as a source.

I will hopefully see you on Wednesday, barring issues, but if not, I will set up a Moodle link for you to submit what you have for my by Wednesday night. Look for a posting to that matter.
