Transcript of The OREO Method

The OREO Method The delicious way to get your point across Why Quote? You should use quotes because they provide solid evidence for an argument. Without them you're just stating a vague idea. Lindsey Flowers, a senior at Edison HS, states that quotes provide "solid evidence for an argument" and prevent one from simply "stating a vague idea." When appropriate, one should incorporate quotes to add credibility and believability to an argument. Attribution Who said it? Introduction/Credit Quote Explanation Explanation How does it prove your point? Quote Is it relevant? Thesis: Though the FCPS school system offers healthy food options, students should bring their own bagged lunches to maintain a healthy weight and body. Dr. Rosencratz: A dietitian specializing in teenage health, has been published in the Journal of Health & Dietetics and Family Health & Life Magazine The FCPS Office of Food and Nutrition Services Norm Peterson: A business professor at New York University, frequently buys school lunch Jill Smith: A concerned parent in the FCPS school district "Recent studies show that school lunches have an average of 45% more calories than the average bagged lunch" "Fruit is a great way to stimulate horse brain growth" "The FCPS Office of Food and Nutrition Services works hard to offer balanced meals for all students" Framing Your Quote Top cookie: Introduce author "So what's your point?" John Wilde, writer for National Geographic Kids, Bottom cookie: Explain/Elaborate quote He further explains the comparison, stating that mongooses are known for their cunning ways and agile movements, similar to the rattlesnake. Mongooses live in Africa, Europe, and Asia. "Mongooses are the rattlesnake of the grasslands" (Wilde). They are carnivores, meaning they eat other small animals. John Wilde, writer for National Geographic Kids, states that "Mongooses are the rattlesnake of the grasslands." He further explains the comparison, stating that mongooses are known for their cunning ways and agile movements, similar to the rattlesnake. Introduction/Credit Quote Explanation states that "Mongooses are the rattlesnake of the grasslands" Cream: Work quote into sentence What do you think? Mongooses live in Africa, Europe, and Asia. "Mongooses are the rattlesnake of the grasslands" (Wilde). Mongooses are carnivores, meaning they eat other small animals. Dr.Rosencratz, a published dietitian specializing in teenage health, states that "Recent studies have shown that school lunches have an average of 45% more calories than the average bagged lunch." This indicates that while school districts attempt to offer healthier food options, processed food still cannot compare to a fresh-made meal. On the other hand, one must consider that not all families have the time in the morning to prepare a bagged lunch. This directly contradicts FCPS' claim to offer healthy meal options. Teenagers prefer chips over broccoli in their bagged lunches. Thesis: Schools should get rid of zero tolerance policies. African American students are facing discrimination in school again. They face this tolerance policy three times as often as white students. "The principal singled out Bryson, the only African-American in his grade, for punishment, patting him down and scanning his sixth-grader's frame with a metal detector. He was placed in an alternative program for 'bad' students, serving two days of his sentence until his mother brought in the NAACP" (Fuentes 10). Quick Tip! "The principal singled out Bryson, the only African-American in his grade, for punishment, patting him down and scanning his sixth-grader's frame with a metal detector. He was placed in an alternative program for 'bad' students, serving two days of his sentence until his mother brought in the NAACP" (Fuentes 10). Schools should get rid of zero tolerance policies.
