In class: 
1. The sub will take roll and then you can use a tablet or your own device to write the synthesis essay found here. All of the essays are on this document but you are only writing the synthesis. Take exactly an hour. When you finish, in a separate color, work with at least two other people (one at a time)  to score your essay and write feedback in the margin. Work with these other people one at a time. I’m trusting you to not revise your essay at this point, to just score what you wrote in that hour long time frame. Once you and at least two other people have moved through your essay partner style and you have two scores and two sets of feedback on your essay, you can turn your work in and have a study hall. (5th, if you only get one person to look at your piece or just have time to write, that’s fine.)
