Transcript of Copy of Strategies for Timed Writing

Strategies for Timed Writing Strategies.. IDEAS... POINTERS... HINTS... SUGGESTIONS...
First of all, read the assignment and scan all of the information on the page. Check the footnotes and the bottom of the page. The title of the passage and the writer are somewhere on the page. Organization
is a key
to your essay. Genres: Organized means indent your paragraphs from start to finish. Indentions should all line up! Create transitions from paragraph to paragraph, point to point, such as:
For example,
Another point
That issue also
In addition
By contrast, Reading the assignment: somewhere in the assignment is the concrete: D.I.D.L.S. + POV as well as the abstract: to + action verb, for example: to explain, to illustrate, etc. (infinitives) Once you have located them in the assignment, the basic analysis is to find concrete details / text evidence and then support with commentary. You know that you will always need an introduction, which should include your assertion, and a conclusion ---- these do not have to be creative or lengthy, just do the job. Concrete details (or what)
+ Commentary (or why / reasons)
= analysis paragraphs/essay
Remember the ratio is 1:2. Meaning for every one concrete detail you want to say two things about it. The formula below might help you:
Learning to analyze is a process. Selection, passage,

,LINE #,

0 upper level LOWER level Here are some things
that might help
your timed writing. Do not skip a line between paragraphs. You need that space. My recommendation is to divide the passage into “chunks” (DO NOT USE THIS WORD IN YOUR ESSAY), or manageable parts.
Although there is no “magical line” , about every 12-14 lines, or the natural break between paragraphs is a great place to divide your passage into those manageable parts. If you are the type of writer that must have numbers
here you go with a few ideas:

Paragraph 1: 2 sentences; first sentence should have genre, title of selection, writer ; second sentence should be your assertion (D.I.D.L.S.)

Paragraph 2, 3, 4: Opening sentence; 3-4 concrete details (WHAT) + 2 commentary for each concrete detail; 1:2 ratio
Closing sentence; transitions used throughout

Paragraph 5: 1-2 sentences that wrap up what you have analyzed
WHat should paragraphs look like? Reader, audience,
...…keep your analysis
in 3rd person Handwriting is a vital part of the scorer’s ability to read your essay.

Be organized and make your paragraphs identifiable.

Never refer to writer by first name only.

Use the information the assignment gives you.

Organize and plan to get the most out of your grade.

Do not use the same words over and over and over and over and over
Sophisticated vocabulary will get you some really high points!!!

Use commentary verbs when writing commentary. (Purple page I gave you)

Use all of your time when timed writing..write a paragraph + read it back + edit and then move on. This will save time in the long run and you will have corrected as you go!

If you choose to use a pen (I do not recommend), but if you doplease put one line through a mistake so it does not distract from the overall look (aesthetics) of your paper.

Use the same writing tools you do for any other type of writing: grammar, caps, punct, sentence variation, paragraphs, etc.
3. TIME MANAGEMENT You should be writng the entire time! Sophisticated Vocabulary
is a good thing! SCORERS ARE TRAINED
THEY DO WELL! Commentary verbs to + a commentary verb from the list

You will want to select
a handful to use
Each time you write.
before long, you will be
a master at commentary!

also known as an "infinitive" If you would like a PERSONAL copy of
the notes from this Prezi, make sure your gold coin
goes in the jar at the back. I will only run off enough copies as I have coins at the end of today! ATTENTION KIDS!!!
