Next class we will be having a workshop on our essay drafts. Be reminded that you must have forty percent of your draft completed to get full credit for this assignment. Based on the feedback I got from you in class today I will go over several topics on Wednesday related to finishing out your papers. Final drafts will be due next week so that you have the weekend to make any changes.
