OC Writes/FSA prep
Transcript of 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)
Each paragraph needs:
*a main idea
*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."
