Look at a website and write a 5 paragraph essay by 12am tonight.

I’m studying and need help with a English question to help me learn.

1) READINGS: For our quiz, Read Kate Chopin’s “Story of an Hour” pp. 161-164 in our textbook. Then, review this link: http://www.katechopin.org/ (Links to an external site.)
Take the Chopin quiz below:
2) Read about the “Definition Essay” in your textbook or if you do not have a textbook read about it online HERE (Links to an external site.): (Links to an external site.)Choose one of the words Iisted in the textbook or in the resource I just gave you for your topic. Your definition essay thesis is due this unit.
3) For an example of a good definition essay, read “What Is Poverty?” on the link below. I want an extended definition, using metaphors as in the Poverty essay. I do not want to see a dictionary definition. Tell me what the dictionary does not tell me about the word you are defining.
4) Submit a thesis for your definition essay paper in the forum below.

5) To prepare for one of our assignments, read this article on Mexico’s Day of the Dead. http://www.mexonline.com/daydead.htm (Links to an external site.) Then, I want you to find your own article and write a five paragraph essay. Specific directions are in the Day of the Dead Assignment.
