Transcript of Crossover Short Answer Responses

You always want to connect the quotes you use to an associative word.

Here's an example:
In
Crossover Short Answer Responses
ABC
A - Answer the question
For a crossover short answer, your first sentence must answer the question and mention both authors.

B - Back it up
Instead of providing just one quote for your evidence, you must provide a quote from each selection.

C - Comment
Your commentary will explain the similarity or difference between the two selections.
Comment
Now it's time to explain how our answer and evidence are connected.

Use the following template to reveal this connection:

___________ and ___________ wrote their articles in order
(author 1) (author 2)
reveal that young people today are _________________.
(new associative word)

That's it! If you've followed along so far, you should have a complete short answer (
ONE PARAGRAPH
).
Your turn
In a new word document, complete the following template:

Both ___________ and ___________ are writing to show
(author 1) (author 2)
that young people today are _______________.
(associative word)

Remember that it's important to include at least one strong associative word in your answer.
Writing a crossover short answer response
Writing a crossover short answer response is similar to writing a response to one selection, but you MUST include textual evidence (quotes) from both selections.

You may still use the ABC method to double-check your work, but there are some tweaks that have to happen.
What is a crossover short answer?
Crossover short answer responses ask you to look at either the similarities or differences between two texts.

These questions will typically ask you about tone, author's purpose, or theme.

Today, you will write a crossover short answer over "Taking selfies in the wrong places" and "Students Lie, Cheat, Steal, but Say They're Good."

You can find
"Taking selfies in the wrong places"
here:
http://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/leonard-pitts-jr/article1977098.html

You can find
"Students Lie, Cheat, Steal, but Say They're Good"
in Schoology in the "Daily Assignments" folder.
The question:
How is the author's purpose similar or different in "Taking selfies in the wrong places" and "Students lie, cheat, and steal, but say they're ok"? Support your answer with textual evidence.
Back it up
The
next slide
will show you how to add textual evidence to back up your answer.

In this case, we need to find a quote from EACH ARTICLE that shows how the authors had either similar or different reasons to write their article.

Look at both articles now, and decide which quotes you want to use. In the next frame, I'll show you how to add them to your response.
Answer the Question
The next slide will show you how to start your short answer with a sentence that directly answers the question:

How is the author's purpose similar or different in "Taking selfies in the wrong places" and "Students lie, cheat, and steal, but say they're ok"? Support your answer with textual evidence.


TIPS:
When a question asks about author's purpose, they're asking WHY an author wrote what they did. Did the authors of both selections have similar reasons for writing their articles? Were they trying to make the same point, or were they trying to say something different?

Keywords for beginning your answer:
Both, Although, While
Back it up - Inserting Quotes
Remember that it's important to connect each quote you use to an associative word.

Use the following template to add evidence to your answer:

____________ reveals that young people today are ___________
(author 1) (associative word)
when he says, "_______________________________________."
(quote from author 1)
Similarly, ___________ reveals this same _____________ when
(author 2) (associative word)
he says, "___________________________________________."
(quote from author 2)
