Product Description
This PowerPoint presentation gives students a basic formula for inserting text correctly and smoothly in their writing. I tell my students that they may never begin a body paragraph with a quote. I’ve used this formula with seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, and even eleventh graders. I have students use colored pencils to mark the different components of the sample paragraphs; then I have them mimic one of the sample paragraphs by “pulling and plugging”: pull out the ideas about Secret Life of Bees and “plug in” your ideas about The Giver, or Fahrenheit 451, or whatever piece of literature we’re studying. We also stretch these paragraphs until we finally get a well-constructed essay. This avoids that dreaded "What this quote says is that..." I print the black and white slides to be used as handouts for the students to color-code. I have also put this on my SmartBoard to color-code. COMMON CORE: Writing 1, 2, 4
