Constructed Response Review
Using Evidence to Support our Ideas
In chapter 9, Atticus says, “Scout, simply by the nature of the work, every lawyer gets at least one case in his lifetime that affects him personally. This one’s mine I guess.” What does Atticus mean by this statement? What lesson does Scout learn from this situation?


A constructed response is a paragraph assignment in which you take a position on an idea, and use evidence from the text you are reading to support that position.
Clincher Sentence
Explanation Sentences
Topic Sentence
This is the first sentence in your paragraph and includes the title, author, and CLAIM (answer to the question).
The Details
EXAMPLE:
In Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," Atticus is assigned the emotional task of defending a black who is accused of a vicious crime.
You must provide 2 quotes from the
text that support the CLAIM in your topic sentence.
Please include proper MLA citation including Author and Page Number.
Provide context: What is happening in the story when the quote is stated.
Example:
Atticus explains that this case will not only affect him, but also his family. Scout tries to learn more about her father’s position by asking him a question: “Do you defend niggers, Atticus?” (Lee 99).
After each quote, you must write
a sentence or two that EXPLAINS
how the quote proves the CLAIM.
Example:
Atticus' decision to take on this case is causing his young children to be exposed to taunting and hateful remarks for the first time.

The Clincher sentence is the last sentence in your paragraph. This sentence re-states the claim, and provides closure to the paragraph.
Example:
Like Atticus, Scout must also deal with Maycomb's racist and judgmental remarks. With the help of Uncle Jack and Atticus, Scout learns to control her temper. Scout realizes that standing up for Tom Robinson is the right thing to do.
Checklist:
Uses TAG in your topic sentence
Uses at least one quote per paragraph
Uses at least 2 transitional words/phrases
Uses MLA when citing evidence (quotation marks, author and page # in parenthesis after the quote)
Maintains the 3rd person (DO NOT USE "I' OR 'YOU")

MLA Format Example:

Your Name
Mrs. Pereira
English 9

To continue, Atticus tries to understand where Scout heard this language. Scout responds, "'s what everybody at school says" (Lee 99). It is evident that Scout's classmates are repeating statements said by adults at home. Like Atticus, Scout must also deal with Maycomb's racist and judgmental remarks.
