  2. Hi Mimi,

    We write the thesis + topic sentences into one sentence called the divided thesis statement.

    Then we use it in our introduction.

    The topic sentences are going to be in each paragraph.

  6. If we do not come back to school on November 7, then will the lesson be given through this website along with the homework, or will the homework just be given through email?

    • Hi Kelvin, The homework will continue to be given through this website for the rest of the year. This should be part of our class work from now on.
