Opening Session
Head down to the media center!!!

Work Session
Welcome to the Media Center! We’re going to start out by setting up a paper in MLA format. I’ll talk you all through doing this, but it should be a review, especially if you were in my class last year!

Once we have all set up our papers, I would like for you to draft an essay on the prompt I gave you yesterday: Why did Annie Dillard choose to title her essay “Living Like Weasels”? What did she hope to achieve with that title? What did she mean?
