Today we worked on planning essays. Each student has been assigned a "Social Class" citizen of the Mesopotamian era (Slave, Farmer, Merchant, Priest or King). They are tasked to create a story entitled "A Day in the Life." Essays need to include characters (with names from that time period), the setting of the story, a conflict of some type and resolution of that conflict. It will be important that essays are logical and fit the time period. Essays are due Thursday March 12.
Work on essay drafts.
