Transcript of Constructed Response

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 CLAIM (answer to the question).
The Details
EXAMPLE:
In the short story, "Thank You Ma'am" by Langston Hughes, the main character Roger changes from the beginning to the end of the story.
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:
Hughes writes, "It was about eleven o'clock at night, and she was walking alone, when a boy ran up behind her and tried to snatch her purse" (1). When Mrs. Jones put him in a chokehold and questioned him about why he did this, he lied and said, "I didn't aim to" (1).
After the topic sentence, you must write a sentence or two that EXPLAINS your claim in further detail.
Example:
In the beginning of the story, Roger tries to steal Mrs. Jones' pocketbook. He is untrustworthy and tries to escape Mrs. Jones after his failed robbery attempt.



The Concluding sentence is the last sentence in your paragraph. This sentence re-states the claim, and provides closure to the paragraph.
Example:
This portrays Roger's character as being dishonest and cowardly.
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:
