For this election day, students will continue to practice paragraph structure using an article about the election.
The article is HERE.
Also, here's a really hilarious video from Seth Meyers from SNL about how difficult it is to select a candidate this year.
This is your writing prompt:
Using typical paragraph structure, write TWO paragraphs (one about Clinton and one about Trump) that explains why each is experiencing both success and failure at the polls. You need to use evidence, but MAY NOT use direct quotes or copy lines from the article in anyway. Automatic half credit if you do this.
This is the seventh year Mrs. DeWitz has taught Freshman. It is her eighth year at Thornton.
