These are a compilation of slides I used in my Grade 9 English class...feel free to add/delete as you see fit! :)
The students wrote a constructed response on their favorite sub-genre.
*In the background picture of slides one and eight, there are hyperlinks to Flocabulary.com and YouTube (they have a great rap on "The Writing Process" and on "Thesis Statements".)
*For slides 3-6, I also posted these samples on large paper around the room, allowing students to evaluate the papers' strengths and weaknesses.
