The work V and I did today focused on grammar and on incorporating information from texts.
In grammar, we talked about adverbs, appositives, and appositive phrases. We looked at combining a variety of techniques to determine adverbs (memorizing common adverbs + looking for what the word modified + asking questions about when/where/to what extent, etc.)
On the issue of incorporating information from texts, I would like V to write an essay this week about Grace Kelly. We decided on an historical expository paper because that genre requires plenty of external sources and information, but does not need a deep theoretical background. We practiced with a quote from this New York Times article, specifically focusing on minimizing the amount of the quote she used, as well as incorporating the quote with correct punctuation.
Since this weekend is Thanksgiving, we're tentatively planning to meet next on Tuesday, November 29.
