Please put your signed research paper agreement in your class inbox.
Today, you will use the ENTIRE class time to write your RESEARCH PAPER!  If you haven’t gotten checked off for all of your sources and your outline, you MUST do that first!  Use your time wisely!  I know that you don’t want to be working on a research paper over Thanksgiving…so do as much of it as you can today!
