What is happening in our world, in our climate, to our health, to our economy, to our environment? No one knows for sure. You will learn to write essays using outside sources to answers these and other open questions. This course will strengthen the skills learned when writing an essay or report. Essays require reasons and examples. You will practice reading, analyzing, summarizing, and citing (quoting) sources that can be used to provide reasons and examples. An essay backed by strong sources is a strong academic paper. Teacher will schedule in-person test with students.
