I Am Malala Body Paragraph - students write an argument after doing close readings of three short articles (linked).
To make an argument out of an informational text.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.1: Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone).
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
Your task is to read the selected texts and then answer the question that is a body paragraph style (like last semester; a graphic organizer is included). You must quote/paraphrase the text 3 times per question, with proper in-text citations; for example, a citation may look like this: (Trent 39). It should be 8-10 sentences long. You may either fill out the graphic organizer or write it out as a formal paragraph.
