Assignment #19 (for 3/5/99)

Reading - Read sample student Synthesis Essay (handout).

Writing - Make a "backwards outline" of the sample essay; i.e. identify what the writing is doing in each paragraph of the essay (you can do this by simply writing in the margins of the sample essay). Begin drafting an informal outline for your Synthesis Essay (to be continued in class next time.)
