  • John made a claim that bill said he came to class a day late and the professor would still be nice, Bill challenged what John said but John provided evidence to his claim by saying “we can go check the emails”
  • one reason papers fail in college is because there is no evidence
  • 1st person has to be backed with evidence
  • in text citations in work cited pages
  • recent calls on a phone are equivalent to a work cited page-who have you been talking to or reading from
  • work cited pages are for going back and accessing what in the paper
  • start papers with a hook, hook in your audience- 1st conflict; she is feeling regret
  • 2nd point of conflict; she doesn’t know what to do
  • time on task- the more time you give scholars to do anything the more it becomes a part of them

  • right now at this stage I should distinguish myself as a scholar

  • Always get papers back within a week

not trying to make perfect writers, just rying to get us engaged

money is not how you buy a book, it is about how much ink you put into it, the only way you own a book is if you write in it

wrong word choice- to fix this problem don’t rely on the computer, your computer is not responsible for your errors.
