Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence. Introduction 5 minutes Today, students will work on a short formal writing assignment. The topic of the assignment is power.
I want to give them an opportunity to plan ways in which they can use them. For this, I ask students to create a web in which they come up with ways of using the devices.
However, I instruct them to use only 6 of the 8 devices we have covered. This is because I want them to ignore allusion because it is very difficult for them. These are the specific instructions I give them for the web.
As they begin, I hear complaints that this is difficult. I clarify that I am giving them an opportunity and time to make purposeful use of these devices.
I explain that they should not stress out if they just cannot come up with examples for one or two of these. Some devices will work much easier than others for their topic. The point is to take control of these and figure out how to use them effectively, which can lead to writing of a quality that is expected by the Common Core.
So in essence, their web is a brainstorming, prewriting tool. In doing this, students are practicing establishing central ideas and communicating these effectively through examples of the devices we have been discussing. A successful web will visually show the connection between what they are going to be communicating, the central points in the center of the web, and how they will communicate it effectively, the examples they are coming up with.
This is a challenging task for my students, but these are important Common Core skills. For this, I want them to use the points they came up with when working on their web and to develop and organize them. Students usually find outlines tedious so I always have to speak of the value of organizing ideas before drafting.
To minimize the stress, I tell them that they are not bound to the outline. They can always change this plan as they go through the writing process, but an outline can really ground their ideas.
I give them more specific instructions. I tell them that their outline is just the bones of their paper and that I want them to include the following: Make two or three mature, intelligent points about your topic.
Support your points with specific examples. Use some of the devices we have studied.Grade 11 Writing Program As part of your first term reading and writing component, you will be expected to produce samples of expository, descriptive, narrative and persuasive writing forms.
