HW10 due 4/7 (4/8 for 10G): Essay Evaluation and Goodreads

1. Monday, we conclude the discussion of The Death of Ivan Ilyich.
2. We also return to the writing workshop with a holistic evaluation of an Ivan Ilyich essay.

The Death of Ivan Ilyich Essay Evaluation

Over the next several days we will evaluate this essay focusing on evidence, introduction, conclusion, thesis statement and topic sentences (as well as other nuances). You must be sure to print out the rubric (if you have not done so) and bring it into class with the essay.

This weekend, I want you to evaluate the thesis, topic sentences, and use of evidence in the essay. This requires that you read the essay in its entirety before going back to each piece of evidence. You are to write out your thoughts on the essay itself. As you are commenting, you should keep the rubric in mind. For instance, reference the evidence section when evaluating the evidence in the essay.

3. Additionally, you are to type up a summary of my feedback on your last essay. You must use complete sentences in this summary. Post your summary on the class-appropriate thread on Goodreads. I ask that you try and do this as soon (by Saturday if you can) as possible as it will help me greatly in writing your anecdotals.

4. Class Vocab coming this evening.
