Product Description
From Electric English...
This assignment is the second exercise in the Progymnasmata. A writing exercise designed to initiate students into various forms of expression. Everyone has a story and fledgling writers should definitely be made aware of this. Once they begin to view writing from this perspective; they will also begin to understand that there are many different ways to approach or write about the same story. Most importantly, however, they will see that how they approach their piece will alter the reader's perceptions of the material. Regardless of the topics, whether from a personal experience to an occurrence in history, it still goes back to the same idea.... Everyone and everything has a story, students need to tap into that idea to bring out their own expressiveness and creativeness in their writing and speaking. I guess, my point here is you can pair these assignments with any material you like best, just plug in the stories, and you're off!!!! :) Although it is listed as a timed writing assignment, this is only to give students the practice they will need to write essays or prompts under time constraints. They write their rough drafts in class and then continue to work with the piece at home over the course of the following week, after which, they submit a final typed copy to you the teacher.
