Research and Expository Essay

to:Computer Explorations

This week, we are embarking on something different in Computer Explorations. Students will be polishing their computer research and writing skills. They will be writing an expository five-paragraph essay on a topic of their choice. We will be going over meaningful paragraphs, reliable sources, and MLA guidelines. I know many students are intimidated by the writing process. This next assignment is to help facilitate the challenges associated with writing as students research and convey their knowledge of a topic of interest to them. Students and parents should be receiving a rubric for the assignment this week. Let me know if you do not get that.

We still have one more music video to get in. Once that is in, grades for the long-term assignment should be available.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.
