We will be finalizing the writing an original argument piece. This paper will serve as the test for argument writing, as it will incorporate all of the parts of an argument. This is due by Tuesday at the end of class. We will begin discussing poetry on Wednesday through the rest of the week.
We will be continuing with argument writing and learning the structure of an argument. In addition, we will begin researching a topic and writing an original argument piece. There will also be a test on argument writing at the end of this week or the beginning of next week depending upon the progression with the writing assignment.
We will continue argument writing and work on identifying parts of an argument as well as looking at two different points of view within a text.
Terms that students need to know and be able to identify- denotation, connotation (positive and negative), claim, evidence, warrant, counterclaim, and rebuttal.
We will be continuing with argument writing, identifying parts of an argument, learning how to write a hook for an argument paper, and tracing both sides of an argument through a text as well as providing supporting evidence.
This week we will be working on Argument writing. Parts of an argument will be introduced and we will begin our first argument piece.
We will be continuing from last week working on AEC format, and we will also begin argument writing. There will be a binder check this week, and there will be a vocabulary test coming next week, so students need to review their bellringer vocabulary words to prepare.
This is a writing heavy week. We will move from AEC (assertion, evidence, commentary) paragraphs to AEC essays, and then we will transition to argument writing.
We will continue practicing on our AEC paragraph writing. There will be some rollover assignments from last week, but this week’s main focus will be revising our paragraphs to make them stronger pieces of writing.
We will be working on some material that rolled over from last week. We will be reviewing characterization and citing textual evidence. Then we will begin learning the AEC paragraph structure for developing essays and develop an essay from the story we are reading utilizing this writing format.
Welcome back! I am looking forward to the second semester. It will be a very busy time, with lots of reading and writing ahead. An overview for this week will be a first semester skills review on Tuesday, a characterization worksheet on Wednesday, an introduction to the AEC paragraph on Thursday, and this lesson will probably roll over to Friday because students will be implementing this writing style in class as well.
