PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For many years, I struggled to get my students to write with more thought, with more analysis. After working with my colleague and mentor, Gabriel Ramirez, I started using a method he called "Whying It Out."

The program begins with reading a text, develops with Socratic Seminar discussion as well as graphic organizers to guide students, and ends with Guided writing planning.

The bundle includes:
1. Active Reader - a chart that helps guide students in collecting evidence as they read literature. It works best when you assign specific things that students need to look for.

2. "Whying It Out" practice & paragraph writing (example included)

3. Discussion (usually Socratic Seminar, sometimes Philosophical Chairs) - Socratic Seminar Explanation, Rubric, and Student Graphic Organizers included

4. Essay planning sheet - Graphic organizer flow chart

5. Whying out evidence (Same graphic organizer method as step 2)

6. Writing a structured response essay, which includes 3 organizers: Introduction writing, Body Paragraphs, and Conclusion
