OC Writes/FSA prep
The 3 types of writing
On your writing FSA, there are 3 potential types of writing prompts:

*literary analysis (what you've done for the 1st and 2nd OC Writes)
*argument (what you've done on the most recent OC Writes and your DBQ's)
*informative/explanatory (not done)
In each type of writing, you need to have...
Introduction- Thesis statement (TAG- title, author, genre- just title and author for literary analysis)
Body paragraphs
Each paragraph needs:
*a main idea
*evidence- elaboration/transition
*hug the evidence with strong commentary - "which proves..." "which shows..."
*wrap- up (main idea restated)
In your planning, think about creating a 2 column chart
evidence why it's important
Your conclusion should:
*restate your thesis
*include your main points again
*wrap-up/leave it statement/so what/wow last line
"In Cisnero's story
, the character Rachel gets upset when the teacher gives her a sweater that isn't hers."
"The penny has been in circulation for hundreds of years; however, it should be eliminated."
PFO: Purpose, Focus, Organization (column 1 on your rubric)
*strongly maintain a clear controlling idea
*the right answer to the right question
*focused thesis
*focused main idea statement in each body paragraph
to support thesis
*use appropriate and varied transitions
*clear progression of ideas (intro, body, conclusion)
*maintain a formal style (no "I think")
Evidence and Elaboration (2nd column of rubric)
*smoothly integrate relevant evidence
*well-chosen evidence (8th grade)
*introduce or set up before the evidence
*present in a logical order (7th and 8th grade)
*cite sources
*John Fund, author of...
*"Penny Anti" by John Fund...
*According to source 3...
*"......"("Penny Anti")
*elaborate (provide commentary) after each evidence
*explain and connect each piece of evidence
*use precise, domain-specific vocab (ex: the character reveals this through
*vary sentence structure
*The most important thing is to understand and respond to the prompt. Identify the kind of writing (literary analysis, argument, or explanatory/informative).
*Look for 2 parts/2 tasks
*Plan: create a t-chart
