Now that you’ve finished the book and completed the questions and activities, you should know the book well enough to come up with a position and defend it in an essay.
Previously we talked about writing a thesis. That is your starting point, and provides direction for the rest.
Once you have a strong thesis, you can come up with an outline/plan for your essay.
Yesterday you were supposed to watch a video about the format/structure of a 5 paragraph essay. View that video here.
Following that, you were to do some activities where you planned out a simple essay. Download those activities here: five-paragraph-essay-activities
Here are some guidelines and instructions for your essay: MercyKillingEssayOutline
Your task now is to write the essay described in those instructions. Once we get some essay activities out of the way, we will finally be ready to watch the movie version!
