REVIEW: What do you know?


STANDARD: "Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text."
Learn to cite (find exact examples from the text) from things you have read to support your claim while being relevant (on topic) to your paper.

WHAT TO DO: Find out the central claim or idea of a piece of text and how it is shown through out certain moods, tones, or rhetoric based off of details from the text.

HOW TO DO IT: Go through the text and find out what the main idea is based off of what the facts and in-text citations are saying.

WHAT TO DO: Summarize it in your own words from how you interpret it.

HOW TO DO IT: Think about what you take away or think about a piece of text and summarize it. DO NOT USE OPINION.

STANDARD: "Determine a theme or central idea of a text and how it is conveyed through particular details; provide a summary of the text distinct from personal opinions or judgments."
Describe how a story unfolds in a series of events and how the characters behave as the story finds a resolution.
How does the story change?

What should I look for when I analyze the craft or structure of a NARRATIVE vs. an INFORMATIVE piece?
Recognize context clues around the word choice.
Decide the effect on a word choice by the character’s determined personality.

Narratives are normally 1st or 3rd person
A narrative story tells a characters life/story that can be fictional
A narrator or character will explain the exposition, setting, character traits, and background.
Ask yourself: WHY would the author use this POV?

Articles are normally in 3rd person (rarely will they use "I" opinion)
It is informative to the reader.
POV is factual and tells you the true meaning of a certain subject.
Its genre is non-fiction; it doesn’t use a plot diagram**.

"Explain how an author develops the point of view of the narrator or speaker in a text." (NARRATIVE)
"Determine an author's point of view or purpose in a text and explain how it is conveyed in the text." (INFORMATIVE)
How do I gather and use the knowledge and ideas I read about, whether it's NARRATIVE or INFORMATIVE text?

You are able to compare and contrast different genre types. Ex: Able to compare and contrast a science book and a fiction book to each other

You are able to compare and contrast using different themes and topics that are the same, but written in different stories or books.

Compare means to find similarities and contrast means to find the differences. In other words, to read different genres and see both.

"Compare and contrast texts in different forms or genres (e.g., stories and poems; historical novels and fantasy stories) in terms of their approaches to similar themes and topics."

How should I produce
writing in a proficient manner?
The Writing Process
Step 1:
Pre Write = make a brainstorm of what you want to write. Don’t forget to outline!
Step 2:
Draft= make a rough draft that you create from your outline after you create the outline.
Step 3:
revise= Revise your rough draft, adding details that are needed, and get rid of irrelevant details.

Wild animals are not good animals to have in your home as a pet.
Evidence: “Human injury often occurs when any animal responds to a perceived threat with instinctive ‘fight or flight behavior’.”- http://www.centerforwildlifeinformation.org/

*Literary: taking evidence from a story that is learned
*Analysis: breaking down information and taking what you want
*Anecdote: a short story

Find and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, telling the difference from claims supported by reasons/evidence from claims that aren’t.
How can you tell a properly supported claim from one that isn’t?
How to evaluate arguments well:
Look for rhetoric (logic, credibility, and emotion) and sources.
Are there any fallacies?

"Trace and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims that are supported by reasons and evidence from claims that are not."
Conventions + Grammar
What skills should I be able to do when it comes to finding/understanding the meaning of WORDS, PHRASES, and FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE?
Determining Meaning
use context clues to determine what a word means
use common greek and latin prefix and suffixes: ex: audience auditory audible
Use dictionaries glossaries and thesaurus
Define HOW to pronounce and determine EXACT part of speech (POS)
Verify the prefixes and suffixes of the word or phrase (check a dictionary or context clues)
Figurative Language

Interpret figures of speech (e.g., personification) in context.
Use the relationship between particular words (e.g., cause/effect, part/whole, item/category) to better understand each of the words.
Distinguish among the connotations (associations) of words with similar denotations (definitions) (e.g., stingy, scrimping, economical, unwasteful, thrifty).
look for a comparison* using like or as. Ex: His breath smells like death. Relationship between words: part/whole
look for an implied** comparison. Ex: She had a heart of stone. Relationship between words: cause/effect
look for overstating/exaggeration. Ex: The shot heard ‘round the world. Relationship between words: item/category
look for something that compares a human trait to something non-human. Ex: The wind screamed… Relationship between words: cause/effect

What do I need to know regarding regular EDITING vs. specific grammar conventions like PRONOUNS?
Ensure that pronouns are in the proper case (subjective, objective, possessive).
Use intensive pronouns (e.g., myself, ourselves).
Recognize and correct inappropriate shifts in pronoun number and person.
Recognize and correct vague pronouns (i.e., ones with unclear or ambiguous antecedents).
Pronouns fit into a specific few groups: possessive, subjective, and objective

pronouns that take the place of a subject or a noun. Ex: He ate an orange at dinner, it was very good.

Objective pronouns:
take the place of a direct object, Indirect object, or the object of the preposition.

show ownership over a noun/object. Ex: That is his toy dog.

Intensive and Reflexive pronouns:
Nouns that end in self. Intensive don’t need to end in self they just show exaggeration. Ex: He ate the apple himself. Reflexive needs to be there to make sense. Ex:He need to do his homework by himself.

Vague pronouns:
just don’t exactly make sense. They have no antecedent or just an unclear one.

is a word that shows what type of pronoun it should be. Ex: He likes to eat his cookies.

Conventions: Editing
Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
Use punctuation (commas, parentheses, dashes) to set off nonrestrictive/parenthetical elements.

Review all of the punctuation and spelling while writing.
Use the writing process when writing.
When writing use punctuation (commas, parentheses, dashes) to begin nonrestrictive parts. Like "He saw her, though she was ignoring him, walking down the road."

Citing to Support
