Well, I guess you guys have the luck of the Irish, because by the time I discussed ways to approach your learning in general and your writing in specific and then outlined strategies to start your essay, the class was over. We did have the chance to look at Khoya's thesis statement and then I gave an example of how to begin a paragraph discussing the literal application of the garrison mentality.
Finally, you'll note that I have added an observation that James Gray (who studied this topic last year) made when he saw our notes on the board. I found it very interesting. Does it support the g.m. for the digital genration?
