    • 3. Guiding Principles• Nothing enters these spheres that is not directly related to all the spheres surrounding it.• Your thesis guides everything you write in your essay.• Your paragraphs action should build towards your conclusion.• Remix is how we progress in human expression. If you want, take what we have here & remix it, but remember: it has to be better!
    • 4. Paragraphs• Always have a topic sentence (even if it is embedded).• Always have examples or evidence linked to your topic sentence (3 - 4) and analysis of that evidence describing the link.• Always end with a Hook (to link to the next paragraph).
    • 5. Format• 12 pt Helvetica or Times New Roman font• Header with Title & Page Numbers• Top Right Corner: Name, Class, Period, Date• Double spaced• If it’s a 1000 word assignment, anything less than that, even by 1 word, is penalized whole letter-grade down.• Works Cited
    • 6. Handing In Work• Always Save & DON’T DELETE (Make an English Folder)• If I assigned it for “that day”, it is due the moment class begins, or it is late.• Lost Work cannot be verified so it’s a zero.• Late Work: Docked 70% for the 1st week, 50% after that.
