For Monday, bring in a draft of Essay 3–at least one page. Make sure to spend considerable time crafting the introduction, thesis, and method. Make sure the thesis is an argument.

Also, prepare for Quiz 3, which will cover: citation unscrambling; If-then sentences, and Russell Shorto’s “Henry Hudson” article on page 232.
