BCRs and ECRs
Transcript of BCRs and ECRs
It uses details that are directly stated and implied to support your topic sentence.
It talks about more than just what was said in the selection that you are writing about. It makes a connection between the story and real life. What does a great BCR look like? Stands for Extended Constructed Response
The ECR should contain three paragraphs:
1. An introduction that describes your topic in a general way. This paragraph should end with the thesis, the point of your whole three paragraph essay.
2. A body paragraph that goes into specific detail about your thesis. It should use details from the story you read to support your ideas and should connect to real life. It should start with topic sentence that explains what the paragraph will be about.
3. The conclusion should restate your key points from your intro and body paragraphs. Nothing new should be said in the conclusion. It should end with you restating your thesis, the point of your essay. ECR This is a BCR that would get a score of 3 on a 0-3 scale. Look at the criteria for a BCR that would earn a score of 2. Note the main words that describe that BCR in your notes. Now, go through the BCR that would get a score of one. Make a note of the main words that describe that BCR in your notebook.
What earns a BCR a score of zero? An ECR-like the interview manuscript you recently wrote- should be specific (especially in the body paragraph, clear enough for the reader to understand your ideas, use powerful words, and should not have ANY mistakes! The info that you just wrote down describes an ECR that would get a score of 4 on a 0-4 scale.
Take a few minutes to briefly note the key words of the bullet points of ECRS that earn scores, of 3, 2, and 1. Do each one individually. Now, we are going to reflect on the influence others have had on our lives in preparation for reading a short story in which the narrator (a child) has his/her life greatly enhanced by an adult in her life. Again, the most important facts to remember about BCR (and ECR) writing are that stances taken in the writing need to be supported by facts from the writing and need to connect with the people and experiences encountered in real life. What is an ECR? What is a BCR? Identify an example of a topic that you wrote an ECR for and a topic that you wrote a BCR for. Warm Up: What qualities do strong ECRs have? In the ECR you wrote, what might you have done to make it stronger? Closing
