Writing with Mrs. Ranson
Transcript of Writing with Mrs. Ranson
Becoming the next Shakespeare is easier than you think. All you need is a phenomenal teacher and a couple supplies, and you're set.
Writing with Mrs. Ranson:
Transforming writing bit by bit
Swapping out boring words like run and jump for exciting words like dash, dart, sprint, leap, spring, etc, we use our word lists and memorize all the descriptive words they hold. Our word lists are treasure chests filled with exceptionally spectacular adjectives, verbs, adverbs, figurative language, and every other type of descriptive words imaginable. Just remember to bring your highlighters!
Spice it up
Learning how to start sentences with verbs and use figurative language, we spice up our writing. Using transition words, adjectives, adverbs, and more descriptive words, we excel in our writing skills. Reading at a high level, we enhance our writing and use our writing skills wisely.
The Writing Process
Learning to use the writing process in order to write our essays, we drastically reduce the amount of time it took to write an essay.
First, we write our four square. We use strong, vivid verbs to start our topic sentences and descriptive adjectives and adverbs in our details.
Next, we turn our four square into a rough draft on the computer or on paper.
Then, we edit our rough draft to make it more descriptive and interesting, check for grammar, and check for spelling.
Finally, we type our final draft and check it over before printing it and turning it in.
