Day Introductions: Students will play a Four Corners activity in which the teacher will ask questions on any topic and students will go to the corner of the room they most believe strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree. The teacher will allow time for each group at the corner to discuss why they feel the way they do and then share out their opinions and justifications.
This will act as an introduction to persuasive writing to allow students to see that they must back up their claims. Instruction: These days will be dedicated to writing the essay. Students will be required to complete parts of the mathematical process and the essay each day. The teacher will check off the accuracy of the math at the beginning of each class.
As the culmination, students will upload their final product to Edublog and complete the reflection. Choose the Right Text messaging 2. Text in your answers 3. HW: Preassessment 1.

Due next day 7 Prove Your Point DUE To bring our study of systems of equations to a close, you are going to write a persuasive essay to convince the reader of the best method to solve a system of equations.
You must provide the process and solution for all four methods: graphing, substitution, elimination, and matrices. Be sure that you include a thesis, body paragraphs, concession and refutation paragraph, and conclusion see attached Planning Your Persuasive Essay. Criteria 1. Original word problem that can be solved using systems of equations 2.
The solutions must be incorporated into your essay 3. Be sure to: a. Include a thesis b. Use logical reasoning to support your thesis c. The word problem and essay is thoughtful and engaging d. Use highly effective word choices e. Have varied sentences f. Edit for mechanics, grammar, and spelling 4. Your story must be typed, but your pictures can be hand drawn or digital.
Your essay must be long enough to incorporate all the necessary components. Word Problem: Method 1: Algebraic work below Method 2: Algebraic work below Method 3: Algebraic work below Method 4: Algebraic work below 9 Algebraic Component Rubric Points Description 0 The student did not apply algebraic techniques to solve the system The student made major algebraic mistakes.
The student did not solve for the correct answer. The student did not complete all four methods. The student provided answers to the system but provided little to no work The student solved all four systems of equations with some minor mistakes. The student showed some work in their process The student solved all four systems of equations with no mistakes.
The student showed all work in their process. During these tutoring sessions, I began to repeat myself with startling frequency, and, I discovered that most stu- dents write just like I do: The vast major- ity of students wanted speedy methods to solve the same recurring problems.
As a result I developed ways to quickly steer struggling writers in the right direction, unleash their creativity, and show them the keys to revision. To my dismay, I found that no writing manual suffi- ciently demystified the writing process. Even the smallest books on composition are over pages in length.
This book changes all that. The Quickest Way Few students even form organized plans for writing their papers, let alone follow them.
This, by itself, gives you a tremendous advantage. The particular method I have pre- sented in this volume remains the quickest complete meth- od that I have encountered and personally practiced. It remains impos- sible to write a paper without first reading the assigned material and, most importantly, thinking about it.
Simply follow the procedures in this book, and they will become instinctive. I have attempted to clarify the composition process, clearing a pathway for you. You only need follow the path to fluent, confident, and rapid writing. If you have not started writing your paper and have no draft to work with, use this book from beginning to end. The next step involves the intro- duction, conclusion, and easy fixes for major errors.
If you are desperate or masochistic, it is possible to complete both steps in one all-day or all-night session. The instant thesis will help you locate and focus the thesis you already have before moving on to the revision section.
You should be able to complete this in one evening, even during your first experience with this book. Most techniques in this book take longer to read than to practice. Your first attempt at this method will most like- ly be your slowest.
I would suggest a two-day time schedule for the first paper. After you master the process, you will probably work much faster and use the book only for an occasional reference. The sample starting on page 57 shows how an actual A paper looks. Your finished paper should have a similar appearance, with clean type, evenly spaced paragraphs, an introduction, a conclusion, and proper quotations.
The sample exists for you to see how all the things mentioned in this book mesh together in a finished paper. Somebody in your class might have the same idea. Word processors and computer word processing programs make writing papers extraordinarily easy. If you are still banging away on an ancient typewriter or dare I say it writing with a pen and paper, you are at a serious disadvantage. A goose-quill pen may be oh-so-romantic, but nothing compares with the convenience, built-in editing tools and speed of word processors.
If you bought this book you are probably serious about your grades, and students serious about their grades need access to a computer. This book contains word-search methods that are ideally suited to computer applications. Searches by eyeball are another story. If you do not have a computer, try using one at a campus lab. Use a computer next time, though.
Students using computers are writing their pages faster and neater than you are. You want more motivation? They sit next to you in class. If you are like most students, your paper is due embar- rassingly soon, and you have no clue what to write.
You believe that your classmates are fearless, smarter than you are, more disciplined, and already finished. Your paper will develop in two phases.
Prove Your Point [10th grade]
First, you will create a rough draft in a hurry. Then, in the second phase, you will revise your rough draft and fix everything that is wrong with it. If you miss the point, your professor will give the A to someone else. Never fear. I will save you with my formula for an instant thesis. It works for any paper or essay on any subject. Thesis helpers come in many forms. I first encountered a fill-in-the-blank thesis in a college handbook, but they are rather common. Many professors show similar devices to their students to help them discover their theses.
I simply made this one fast and easy to use. Now burn the following formula into your memory: As proof, I will formulate a nearly impossible thesis.
Start with your idea, whatever you want to prove. A general statement would read something like: The last blank is a little more tricky. Write your reasons and evidence in blank 3. I just happen to know silly things about Albert Einstein. For example he never learned to tie shoelaces, and as a child people thought him dim-witted.
Although many people thought Albert Einstein was a Genius, 2. An instant thesis! Once you have a thesis to write about, you will not waste your time. Take some time right now if you have it and practice writing a few theses.
They can be about anything. Here are a few samples both seri- ous and silly to help give you the feel: Although many people think the earth is round, 2. Although Shakespeare was a great dramatist, 2. Students struggle at length with these assignments, only to misinterpret them and then write confusing, unfocused essays.
I will show you how to use these complicated instructions to your advantage, and find a quick thesis that is right on the mark. Milk the question to find the hidden thesis. If we read between the lines, these questions do our work for us. This may seem strange, but more often than not, your professor will practically give you a thesis, and save you the trouble of thinking one up.
We only need to recognize what she or he has given us. Plato argues that politics require the city to create members with just souls. According to Plato, how is justice in the city the same as justice in the individual?
What is his argument? Does he convince you? The assignment, though brief, packs a wallop. Luckily we can fill in the blanks in the instant thesis and solve this problem fast. Notice that the first statement contrasts the sec- ond one. The secret to a good thesis is contrast. You must show how your main idea thesis differs from the obvious or common opinion. Milk it for drama and conflict.
The above example contains three questions: How is justice in the city the same as justice in the individual? Question 2 is more general than question one. This question may have a place in the paper, but probably not as your thesis. Question 3 is the only one left, and luckily it just what we need. The professor wants you to take a stand, and argue that Plato is right or wrong.
Although Plato argues with great conviction about justice, 2. Of course you could just as easily write a thesis exactly opposite: Although Plato discussed justice over two thousand years ago, 2. No time like the present to start chipping away at that nasty procras- tination. If you have completed the instant thesis, move on to that section now. One more word about the thesis: Be con- sistent! Formulate a bold thesis and prove it, even if you decide to prove Einstein was a dolt and Plato was a fool.
Readers may disagree, but at least your point will be clear and well made. Everyone will know what you are saying, most importantly you and your professor.
Usually the professor presents two or more works for the student to either compare or contrast to each other. The essay assignment usually reads like this: Your professor is a fiend!
Hold on, things are not so bad. Remember the first thing to look for when forming your thesis is contrast. How quickly we forget. Albert Einstein was a genius, but he could never tie his shoes, or Plato lived long ago, but his ideas still apply. In the above assignment, the only thing for you to decide is whether Jesus and Buddha are alike or different. Simply write the answer to that question in thesis blank 2: Notice that when we flesh out the above examples, we have two distinctly different theses: Although Jesus and Buddha represent different religions, 2.
Agree or disagree. Alike or different. Yes or no. Convincing or unconvincing. There is a duality built into the question, making it easy to choose sides. All that remains are the rea- sons why you chose your thesis.
I will explain proof in the next section, but remember, whatever thesis you choose, you must stick to it! MAKE A CHOICE Now we need to find the contrast or contradiction in your assignment, fill in both sets of blanks below, stating the thesis one way although similar, they are different and then the opposite way although different, they are similar.
Then take a few minutes and figure out which argument you would like to argue. Students often write difficult and unorganized essays while attempting to canvass two works simultane- ously.
There are two simple approaches to a paper involv- ing multiple authors.
Following a thesis that introduces both authors, you write a complete and independent essay on only one author in question. Then, with the first author out of the way, you are free to com- pare or contrast the second author with the first. You can display your exten- sive knowledge in the first portion of the essay, leaving the other for the second portion.
A useful trick indeed! A six-page paper matching this description could be diagrammed like this: One paragraph about Jesus would lead to one on Buddha, leading to Jesus again. This method works well when you want to contrast several different points. A diagram for this method would appear like this: First, merely having a plan sets you apart from many other students. Those who blunder through the assignment with no plan of attack cannot produce a quality product. Merely following a plan will automatically pre- vent many errors that commonly occur in student writing.
Second, your chosen method will accent your material and ability to the greatest advantage. For every piece of evidence, you must argue in terms of two authors or works instead of one. Find areas of common ground or conflict between your two authors or works, and there you will discover the best evidence to prove your thesis.
Proving the Thesis In order to strongly argue a thesis, you need strong evi- dence. The third blank in the instant thesis forces you to succinctly summarize your supporting pieces of evidence.
Often the evidence you have will dictate which thesis you attempt to prove. If you have more evidence that Jesus and Buddha differ, that may be the thesis to choose. The choice is always up to you. It often helps to number all the major details you can come up with, and list them as part of your instant thesis. Three ideas are usually sufficient, especially when one contains a large issue that can yield many pages. If you can only come up with one or two, try to narrow your topics.
Maybe your one solitary evidence topic actually contains two or three smaller sections. As long as you have enough with which to start writing, go on to the next step. We can always add or delete ideas later. An objec- tion is nothing more than an imaginary disagreement that someone could have with your thesis.
In the process of arguing your thesis, somewhere in the middle of your paper, a sentence like this would appear: When you introduce and disprove a contrary point, your paper is more complex.
If you were to add an objection to our Shakespeare example, it could appear like this: Often, the content of the objection will decide that for you. In the above example, Desdemona would be discussed along with her husband, Othello. The complexity that the objection brings to your paper can make the differ- ence between a good paper and a great one. Once you have the basic method down, you should begin experimenting with this worthy technique.
Now what? Freewriting is just what it sounds like—writing with total abandon, paying no attention to grammar, punctua- tion, paragraphs, or even writing complete sentences.
You can rest easy knowing that your profes- sors are the source of so much information. We are on the right track to giving them what they want. Now we just have to fill in some more blanks. We now have three more blanks to fill: For each of the above blanks, you will freewrite as much as possible, for as long as possible, with as much detail as possible.
Start with the first statement and write everything you can think of that falls under the heading of Iago. Include every idea, scrap of argument, write down key words, quotations, and other pieces of evidence that you have floating around in your head. Write it all in one big, flowing, stream-of-consciousness paragraph. The idea is to get everything in your brain onto paper. When you have exhausted the possibilities for blank 1, move on to 2 and repeat the process, and then on to 3.
I have found freewriting very effective when divided in this way. You can relax and let the words flow, while remaining on the topic. When you have exhausted idea 1, idea 2 remains untouched, a fertile ground for another freewriting session. Obviously this method alleviates boredom which is why we hate papers to begin with , and is much simpler and more effective than attempting to free- write an entire paper start to finish.
Think of it as a road map or blueprint to guide your creativity, which prevents you from getting off track. Let noth- ing interrupt your train of thought as it rambles down its track. Our objective is to create a rough draft right now. It is supposed to be messy. We will rewrite and polish later, so for now grammar and punctuation do not exist. Merely turn off or dim your monitor so you can- not see what you are writing.
Hide the type, and you can better concen- trate on your thoughts. An impending deadline somehow seems to miraculously cure this condition. Intermittent stops and starts are common when free- writing.
Prove Your Point Pdf
Our minds simply work that way. Often the brain- storm drizzles for a bit before the floodgates open. If you have a ten-minute lag while waiting for your next idea, just be patient, it will come. I forbid you! Simply sit quietly or jump up and down and stare at the blank screen until the words flow again. Another reason to type your work is that handwriting is comparatively slow.
When your train of thought turns into a runaway locomotive, even fast typists cannot keep up with the words streaming out of their heads. Relax and let your freewriting instincts loose, and the words will flow with amazing speed.
For instance, if a professor assigns me a four- to six-page paper, I will brainstorm and freewrite until I have filled about four pages. If the assignment asks for five pages, freewrite four and a half. For a ten-page paper, write no more than nine pages. Always freewrite a little less than what the assignment calls for.
The length of your freewrite will increase later as you refine your work. You will add words here and there, pol- ishing up your sentences and editing. You will also be add- ing an introduction and conclusion to the paper in Section Two. These additions more than compensate for the things that get deleted. Often five pages of freewriting will yield a six-page paper when all is said and done.
Your freewrite should look like this one, with similar errors and typos that come from writing with abandon. Thyey are all people whose minds are sophisticaled, and seem in control, at least in public The three main figures are Othello, Iago, and Cassio, three men whose posiirions in the positical and milirary worldofvenice keeps them in the public eye.
Becauase they are all thre concerned with their public images theyare forced ot hide their true inner selves but these inner truths cannot be denied no matter how hard they tryand itis their inner selves that eventually lead to their downfall. Iago pretends to be the good companion and firend of Cassio, but secretly wants to move up onto his rank in the military.
Continue freewrite until ready to move on to 2, then on to 3. Grab that cup of coffee or tea, get comfortable, dim or turn off your monitor, take two deep breaths, and start writing. Look at your paper right now. You have a working instant thesis followed by three or more gigantic paragraphs of freewriting. It still looks messy, but guess what? You are holding a rough draft in your hands.
Now you can go to bed, go out and party, or do whatever. Worry about the rest of it tomorrow. At least you are not pulling an all-nighter. I am pulling an all-nighter! You mean this is due tomorrow? I created this manual for this exact situation.
You know, that big mash of mumbo jumbo that you spewed while freewriting. I know it looks scary, but we are going to fix it up. As you look at your freewrite, you should see very large paragraphs—one for each idea in your paper. In our Shakespeare example we have three, but you may have more or less, depending on your assignment. So far your paper at least has some logic to it. You have three or so topics of evidence, all supporting your thesis, and all separated into their own very large paragraphs.
Now we are going to jazz up what you have. We will fix major errors later, for now just worry about the easy things. Check your quotations, names, or dates if you were guessing before.
Change spell- ings, obvious typos, put in punctuation, and separate things into sentences as best you can. Word processing helps a lot here. Any spell-checking or grammar program can clean up your paper in no time. As you start to fix up your paragraphs and make sentences, you may need to type in extra words and sen- tences in order to make sense out of things. Do it! Type in as much extra as you want. Remember when I said your paper ends up longer than the freewrite? This is where it happens.
Most of your thinking should already be on the page, and these extra phrases are just for clarity. Often this kind of editing can jar your thoughts, giving you lots of new sentences and ideas.
Add them if they fit your thesis, but do not stray. Finish cleaning up idea 1 before you move on to 2. This will make it easier for you to focus. Look for places where you changed gears within the large para- graph, and break things up there. Each paragraph should contain one major idea.
Most of your paragraphs should contain at least three sentences, and many will be longer. Long paragraphs are not uncommon, but page-long paragraphs are forbidden! There must be at least one paragraph break on every page. Further, if only one paragraph break exists on the page, place it in the middle of the page, if at all possible.
The text appeared boring and oppressive before you even started reading. In advertising, for example, ad writers surround text with as much empty space as possible. Years of market research prove that white space soothes the eye and accents the text. The last thing ad writers want is to turn off the customers before they read the ad! Your situation is identical. Include white space on every page, and sell your professors your ideas. Do not turn them off before they even start reading!
Have mercy on your professors and they will reward you with a good grade. Remember, they are reading every paper written in the class. How many students are in your class? Now imagine the professor grading yours last! This is yet another freshman night- mare, and a great reason to include a lot of paragraph breaks.
Quotations are the best concrete evidence you have at your disposal. Writers err when they either quote too much, or too little. The trouble comes in finding the right balance.
A professor once told me to think about quotations as the chocolate chips in a cookie. If there were no chocolate chips, you would be disappointed. A paper functions the same way. If your paper has no quotations in it, you will have no evidence for your thesis. Your reader will go hungry. Further, you cannot make up for this lack by placing a huge paragraph of quota- tions somewhere inside your paper.
Sprinkle quotations throughout your paper and your reader will eat up your thesis.
Short quotations Most students are comfortable using short quotations in their papers. You should easily incorporate them into your own sentences. Try to mesh the two, as in the following example: Just keep your options open and take what your material provides. Long quotations Long quotations will not fit into a sentence, and must stand on their own. If you are quoting a passage that takes up more than four lines of your paper, you must separate it into its own paragraph.
Simply indent ten spaces from your left margin, and indent the whole paragraph. You do not need quotation marks around a block quote, but you do need to place a blank line between your text and the quotation itself. Notice in the following example that the quotation is intro- duced with a colon, as long quotations often are: All seemed lost.
My soul yearned for some explanation, but there was none. No one heard my weak whimpering cries. No one felt my pain and shared it with me. I alone was a single, solitary, wretched being. I craved an end to my protracted misery. This paragraph shows the depth of shame and self-loathing the protagonist feels. Many consider this situation to be directly.
As you can see, large quotations take up a lot of space, but if you try to use them as filler, your professors will catch on. Should you decide to use a long quotation in your paper, make sure that the entire text is necessary.
Do not quote a whole paragraph if you only need one sentence to prove your point. Step Two: Time to examine the logic. We need background information before we can understand the details. What would have to come first in order for you to understand? Often the general introduc- tory material stands out clearly. Luckily, our instant thesis is designed to move from general to specific. This much is done for us. Your freewriting should proceed step-by-step right along with the instant thesis.
Look at your evidence blanks p. In our Shakespeare example, a freewrite would begin with Iago, progress to Cassio, and conclude with Desde- mona.
This arrangement seems fine. Iago and Cassio are minor characters. We should probably discuss them first and leave the main characters, Othello and Desdemona, until the end of our paper. This seems a logical build-up of our material, but we could place Cassio first and Iago sec- ond. Or, since Iago dies last in the play, we could save him for last.
The possibilities are endless. I only require that you have a reason for the order you choose. Look at your rough draft and consider the order of things. Ask yourself questions. Does your thought prog- ress smoothly? View each paragraph as a movable section, and examine the order.
Do your paragraphs read logically?
Do any of your paragraphs make more sense if you swap them? Try not to get too carried away with making changes. Often your first instincts about your material will be the best.
If you cannot decide what to change, trust your origi- nal instincts and change nothing. Step Three: How, you ask? Remember our instant thesis? Now it will become our instant introduction. An ideal opening paragraph always moves from the general to the specific, also. The first sentence always acts as a gradual introduction to the subject, and as the reader moves through, the paragraph becomes more detailed. This also, by design, is the structure found in the instant thesis.
We only need rewrite the thesis sentence as a paragraph. Simply write a complete sentence for each blank in the instant the- sis. We will turn our three-part sentence into a three-sen- tence paragraph—an introductory paragraph!
Watch what happens to an instant thesis using Frankenstein: There are no strong female characters or mothers. All family units in the novel are incomplete.The professor wants you to take a stand, and argue that Plato is right or wrong. Often five pages of freewriting will yield a six-page paper when all is said and done. Annual income As mentioned before, for annual income, you must be earning a minimum of 3,, yen. The teacher will allow time for each group at the corner to discuss why they feel the way they do and then share out their opinions and justifications.
Censorship ancient and modern. Solve three more ways 2. The sample starting on page 57 shows how an actual A paper looks.
