Constructed Response
Using Evidence to Support our Ideas
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.

Concluding Sentence
Explanation Sentences
Topic Sentence
This is the first sentence in your paragraph and includes the title, author and topic of your CR.
Claim
This is where you make your argument/ answer the question.

The Details
EXAMPLE:
In the article, "Death of an Innocent" by John Krakaur, Krakaur includes an excerpt detailing his own experience surviving in nature.
Krakaur and McCandless are similar because both men were unprepared when going out into the wild, and neither one of them was suicidal.
You must provide 2 quotes from the
text that support the CLAIM in your topic sentence. After each quote, you must explain in your own words!
Please include proper MLA citation including Author and Page Number.

Example:
Krakaur writes, "By choice I had no radio, no way of summoning help, no safety net of any kind" (6).
After the topic sentence, you must write a sentence or two that EXPLAINS your claim in further detail.
Example:
In the article, Krakaur explains that even though the Devil's Thumb was a dangerous mountain to climb, he chose to ignore his friends and refused to bring resources such as a radio.
The Concluding sentence is the last sentence in your paragraph. This sentence re-states the claim, and provides closure to the paragraph.
Example:
Similar to Krakaur, McCandless also chose to not bring important resources such as a map in order to experience the ultimate challenge.
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:

In the article, "Death of an Innocent" by John Krakaur, Krakaur includes an excerpt detailing his own experience surviving in nature. Krakaur and McCandless are similar because both men were unprepared when going out into the wild, and neither one of them was suicidal.
In the article, Krakaur explains that even though the Devil's Thumb was a dangerous mountain to climb, he chose to ignore his friends and refused to bring resources such as a radio.
Krakaur writes, "By choice I had no radio, no way of summoning help, no safety net of any kind" (6).
Similar to Krakaur, McCandless also chose to not bring important resources such as a map in order to experience the ultimate challenge.
After Krakauer’s original article was published in Outside magazine, many people criticized his decisions while others applauded them. Based on your reading, is Christopher McCandless a hero and somebody to be admired, or a fool, who made many tragic mistakes. Use at least two pieces of textual evidence to support your claim.
