HW - Pluto Essay Final Draft due 11/12,13

A reminder that the final draft for the Pluto Persuasive Essay is due on 11/12,13 for all students. The essay does not need to be typed, but if it is handwritten is must be neat and legible. Remember to use the basic essay outline presented in class:

Intro paragraph: "Set the scene": provide the reader with a setting of the debate. Tell about the history of the debate starting with Pluto's discovery and culminating with the IAUs 2006 decision. The last sentence in this paragraph should be your thesis statement (your position or claim).

Body paragraphs: To get an A you must include FIVE arguments from the articles and/or the lists we generated in class. Use the links in the previous blog post to find the articles if you've misplaced them. You must write COMMENTARY for each argument (why is the argument important, what does it mean, use metaphors and anecdotes to explain it, etc).

Concluding paragraph that somes it all up and ties back in with your thesis statement.

Get creative and make it an interesting read!

In case you lost it, I'm attaching a copy of the rubric. Use it to check your essay to make sure it is worthy of a good grade.

Good luck!

I remember the university days, these essays were a real headache for me, since I have never been able to write beautifully. I was born for other purposes, I always knew about it. All my questions with the essay I solved with their help This is an excellent way for those who value their time and do not waste it in vain, achieving their main goals.
