Transcript

  • 1. CLASS 10 EWRT 1A
  • 2. AGENDA  Presentation Vocabulary (14-18)  Vocab Game (1-18)  Presentation:  Appositives: Explaining the concept 178-79  Anecdotes  Discussion:  Reviewing The Focus  Reviewing the Basic Features  Reviewing the outline  In-Class Writing: Drafting the Concept Essay
  • 3. The Game • With your group, discuss the words on the next slide for five or so minutes and prepare to compete • Each team will send one member to the board in rotation. • I will read a definition • The first team member to write the correct definition on the board scores a point for their team. • The team with the highest score at the end of the game earns not only the glory of winning but also five extra participation points.
  • 4. Writing Appositives: A sentence strategy
  • 5. A Sentence Strategy: Appositives 177-79  An appositive is a noun or pronoun that, along with modifiers, gives more information about another noun or pronoun. Here is an example from Ngo‟s concept essay (the appositive is in italics and the noun it refers to is underlined):  Cannibalism, the act of human beings eating human flesh(Sagan 2), has a long history and continues to hold interest and create controversy. (Ngo paragraph 5)
  • 6. By placing the definition in an appositive phrase right after the word it defines, this sentence locates the definition exactly where readers need it. Writers explaining concepts rely on appositives because they serve many different purposes needed in concept essays, as the following examples demonstrate. (Again, the appositive is in italics and the noun it refers to is underlined.) Defining a New Term  Some researchers believe hyperthymics may be at increased risk of depression or hypomania, a mild variant of mania (Friedman, Paragraph 5).  Cannibalism can be broken down into two main categories: exocannibalism, the eating of outsiders of foreigners, and endocannibalism, the eating of members of one’s own social group (Shipman 70). (Ngo paragraph, 6)
  • 7.  Each person carries in his or her mind a unique subliminal guide to the ideal partner, a “love map.” (Toufexis, paragraph 17) Introducing a New Term • “Love is a natural high,” observes Anthony Walsh, author of The Science of Love: Understanding Love and Its Effects on Mind and Body. (Toufexis, paragraph 10) Giving Credentials of Experts
  • 8. Identifying People and Things When I was in high school I read the Robert Browning Poem „My Last Duchess.‟ In it, the narrator said he killed is wife, the duchess, because . . .(Friedman, Paragraph 2). Giving Examples or Specifics Some 2,400 years ago, Hippocrates proposed that a mixture of four basic humors—blood, phlegm, yellow bile, and black bile—determined human temperament…(Friedman, paragraph 6)
  • 9. Practice writing appositives: Try to write five good sentences  Cannibalism, the act of human beings eating human flesh(Sagan 2), has a long history and continues to hold interest and create controversy. (Ngo paragraph 5)  Each person carries in his or her mind a unique subliminal guide to the ideal partner, a “love map.” (Toufexis, paragraph 17)  Some 2,400 years ago, Hippocrates proposed that a mixture of four basic humors—blood, phlegm, yellow bile, and black bile—determined human temperament…(Friedman, paragraph 6)
  • 10. Anecdotes
  • 11. Extended Anecdote
  • 12. Short Anecdotes  [S]ome South American tribes kill their victims to be served as part of funeral rituals, with human sacrifices denoting that the deceased was held in high honor.  Unlike the Bangalas, however, the Indians sacrifice only one victim instead of many in a single ritual.
  • 13. Brainstorming Write down some ideas for what kind of extended anecdote you might include in your essay introduction. Write down two or three short anecdotes you might use to support your body paragraphs.
  • 14. Do you have a plan to focus your essay? Take a look at what you have so far: do you have a Concept? A Definition? A focus for your concept? Categories? Types?
  • 15. Remember, choose your concept, and then limit it. For example, if you are writing your essay about the concept of games, focus on one kind of game, like playground games. Then split your limited concept into two or three categories: Using the games example, we might say games with a ball and games without a ball. Then identify two or three types that fall under each of the categories. For example, you might use kids games with a ball, teenager‟s games with a ball, and adult games with a ball. You could use the same three type for “games without a ball.” Focusing your Concept
  • 16. Concept: Games Limiter: Playground Games Category 1: Games with a ball Types  Kids‟ games with a ball  Teenagers‟ games with a ball  Adults‟ games with a ball. Category 2: Games without a ball Types  Kids‟ games without a ball  Teenagers‟ games without a ball  Adults‟ games without a ball.
  • 17. Then provide an example of each kind. . Find examples of each type: Games: Playground games: With a ball (kids, teens, adults); Without a ball (kids, teens, adults)  a kids game played with a ball (kick ball; four square; tether ball)  a teen game played with a ball (basketball, soccer, baseball or fast pitch)  and an adult game with a ball (slo-pitch or lawn bowling).  a kids game played without a ball (tag, hide and go seek)  a teen game played without a ball (kick the can, red rover)  an adult game played without a ball (cribbage, chess, checkers at the park)
  • 18. Concept Essay: Basic Features  A Focused Explanation  Effective writers narrow the general concept, providing an explanation that is focused on an aspect of the concept likely to be of interest to readers.  A Readable plan  divides the information into clearly distinguishable topics  forecasts the topics  presents the topics in a logical order  gives readers cues or road signs to guide them, such as topic sentences, transitions, and summaries  Appropriate Explanatory Strategies
  • 19. Tips for writing your essay  Begin with a long anecdote to draw the reader into your essay.  Write a thesis that includes all of the categories you will discuss.  Use examples and definitions to make your point.  Use appositives to describe nouns and eliminate wordiness.  Take a look at what you have so far: do you have a Concept? A Definition? A focus for your concept? Categories? Types?  Do you have your thesis?
