10R: 4/24/15

Yesterday we identified 7 themes from Othello.

Then, we made connections between the themes in Othello & the other works of literature we read this year.

Your task today is to write a thesis that explores a chosen theme; then, support the thesis with examples from two specific works of literature read this year.

By the end of the period, you should have the following complete:

  • 1 thesis that identifies how a specific theme is evident in two works of literature read this year
  • 2 topic sentences with each topic sentence focusing on 1 work

When you complete the two tasks above, you can begin building the essay around your thesis & topic sentences.
