Learning Target
Students will compose an argumentative essay in which they advocate for a solution to the social issue they have been researching.

Opening Session
Get a laptop! Make sure your laptop matches your desk number so we can keep track of what is working and what has problems.

Work Session
Today you will be composing your social issue solution essay.

  • 500-750 words (yes, that is a maximum! You can’t be too long or your presentations will run over time)
  • Formal style
  • Must present a solution to the same social issue you researched earlier this semester. I understand you probably cannot propose a solution to fix, for example, all racism in the whole wide world ever forever, but you can propose something that will help the issue in your own community. That is what you should focus on.
  • MLA format: Times New Roman size 12, double spaced, MLA heading, etc.
  • Your essay will be due Wednesday, April 24, by the end of class.
  • Upload your finished essay to our class OneNotebook.

Closing Session
Trade the beginnings of your paper with a friend and get some peer feedback!
