District Essay Writing

Objective:  The students will write a great essay.

Write your district essay.  It should be 5 paragraphs.  You have to use three pieces, one being the article.

You will need quotes from each piece.  If you never got your Beowulf papers, you are kinda screwed, but you can find Beowulf quotes on the internet.

Limit your quotes to "three to seven words" and try to integrate them into your sentences.  Don't just slap them in there without a reason.

Here is how I would organize it:

Gilgamesh (oldest hero in lit)
Beowulf (oldest English literature hero)
The article (hero today)
