ENG 4U – Reviewing the essay with an essay

Good Morning! Here are our goals for this week:

1. Complete our essay writing/reading/analyzing unit with a review and a sight passage test;
2. Spend (limited in-class) time writing and peer editing your generic essay, due next Monday, Sept. 29;
3. Begin our study of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet

Friday is a PD day and our time is short, so let’s begin with a quick insight into our use of language:

Next, and to review the elements of an essay, here is one borrowed from the NY Times.
