The cover of this folder is an elementary, student-drawn picture of an angry-looking teacher, hands on hips, scowl plastered on her face. The sketch not only served as a prompt for the author’s secondary-level essays but as an impetus to motivate students to write their own papers.
One type of hook is the use of a famous quotation, which not only proves to a reader /grader that student writers have at their fingertips a broader knowledge base than might be expected but that they are able to use this information as a springboard for developing an essay.
This folder contains two well-developed, multi-paragraphs whose topics will be of interest to students and whose structure, elaboration, and voice will be a handy reference for their own writing.
The writing assignment for the class involves finding quotations with which they identify and writing a persuasive essay based on the meaning inherent in the statement.
Each folder includes instructions on many options for their use.
