History 12: Intro to paragraph writing
Today we discussed the role of rubrics and self evaluation and then we reconnected with some of the terms associated with our discussion of the First World War. I gave some tips for writing good topic sentences and then we practiced and shared those as well as some good statement/support(example) sentences. I asked that you use the prompt on the brown slide to compose a paragraph for Monday. Please double-space and edit your rough copy to eliminate unnecessary words, but also to check that you've included some precise language and signpost words to guide the reader. I also asked that you use the rubric to do a self-evaluation when you've finished. One-page, double-spaced is lots; don't turn this into an essay in your zeal to do well.
