Unit Description

This unit works under the belief that quality art, like nature, has a geometry to it, and just as the closer you look at an element of the natural world or the farther away from the planet you move, there is a structure and geometry previously invisible to, the same is true of a well-written essay. Students begin their study of the geometry of the well-crafted essay by focusing on building their thesis and supporting assertions (topic sentences) prior to drafting their response to literature.
