Note your response must include specific references and supporting ideas for all texts in the current unit of study.

-PAGE 2—Four pieces of evidence from the primary texts and an explanation to show how your response to the Project Question is well supported. The four pieces of evidence need to be direct quotes from the text. Following each direct quote, state how that quote helps to prove the point you made on Page 1.

 

THEN:

Create a power point presentation or word document in which you provide answers for the “Group Project Question” listed in each unit of the course calendar. In answer to the question you are essentially building an argument, which has a claim. You will support that claim with your reasoning. You will support your reasoning with specific examples from each of the texts. In your powerpoint, you must touch on each main text from that unit in relation to the question.
