  4. 4. I have decided not to go out with Tony anymore. First of all, he was late for our first date. He said that he would be at my house by 8:30, but he did not arrive until 9:20. Second, he was bossy. He told me that it would be too late to go to the new Steve Martin movie I wanted to see, and that we would go to a horror classic, The Night of the Living Dead, instead. I told him that I didn’t like gruesome movies, but he said that I could shut my eyes during the gory parts. Only because it was a first date did I let him have his way. Finally, he was abrupt. After the movie, rather than suggesting a hamburger or a drink, he drove right out to a back road near Oakcrest High School and started necking with me. What he did a half hour later angered me most of all. He cut his finger on a pin I was wearing and immediately said we had to go right home. He was afraid the scratch would get infected if he didn’t put Bactine and a Bandaid on it. When he dropped me off, I said “Good-bye Tony,” in a friendly enough way, but in my head I thought, “Goodbye forever, Tony.”<br />

  14. 14. Topic: dating Tony<br />Topic sentence: <br />I have decided not to go out with Tony anymore. <br />Reason 1: -late for first date. <br />Detail or Example: <br />- arranged 8:30 but showed up 9:20<br />Reason 2: - bossy<br />Detail or Example: <br />-insisted on seeing his choice, and ignored my point of view<br />Reason 3: - abrupt<br />Detail or example:<br /><ul><li>instead of an after movie snack or socializing, </li></ul>drove to back road to neck<br /><ul><li>suddenly wanted to go home because of a tiny cut</li></li></ul><li>Organizing and Connecting Evidence<br />The two main ways of organizing evidence are<br />time order (Example, p. 73)<br />the supporting evidence is organized by the order they happen in<br />emphatic order (Example, p. 74)<br />the supporting evidence is organized from least important to most important [“save the best for last”]<br />
  15. 15. Transitions<br />Important tools for organizing and connecting your evidence are transitions.<br />Transitions are words that <br />help the reader follow the writer’s thoughts, and<br />show the relationship between ideas<br />Ex: First, second, moreover, most importantly<br />
  16. 16. Transitions<br />Turn to p. 76 to see more examples of transitions.<br />These transitions are grouped according to what kind of signal they provide.<br />Note that some words appear in more than one category – which ones?<br />
  17. 17. Transitions<br />Now turn to p. 88. Do Activity 1.<br />(If you finish Activity 1 while others are still working, start Activity 2)<br />
  18. 18. Activity, p. 88<br />For one thing, <br />however,<br />a second <br />also<br />last of all,<br />on the other hand<br />
  19. 19. Other Connecting Words<br />Three other types of words that help the reader follow the writer’s points are<br />repeated words (Example, bottom of p. 78)<br />repeating key words to remind the reader of important ideas<br />2. pronouns (Example, bottom of p. 79)<br />using pronouns can help you connect ideas while avoiding needless repetition<br />3. synonyms (Example, bottom of p. 79)<br />help emphasize ideas without repeating words, and<br />adds variety and interest<br />
  20. 20. Other Connecting Words<br />Activity , p. 80<br />(If you finish and others are still working, continue with Activity, p. 90) <br />
  21. 21. Writing Clear, Error Free Sentences<br />Turn to p. 81<br />This page lists the sentence skills necessary for writing clear, effective sentences.<br />We will study many of these topics in class.<br />You can use this list as a checklist during the editing stage of the writing process.<br />
  22. 22. The Four Bases of Writing<br />
  23. 23. BREAK<br />
  24. 24. Run-Ons<br />Q: What is a run-on?<br />A: Two complete thoughts “run together” without a sign that there is a break between them.<br />
  25. 25. Types of Run-Ons<br />There are two types of run-ons:<br />1. Fused sentences<br />Ex: My grades are very good this semester my social life rates only a C.<br />2. Comma splices<br />Ex: My grades are very good this semester, my social life rates only a C.<br />
  26. 26. Correcting Run-Ons<br />There are four methods of correcting a run-on:<br />1. Use a period and a capital letter to break the two complete thoughts into separate sentences.<br />Ex: My grades are very good this semester. My social life rates only a C.<br />
  27. 27. Correcting Run-Ons<br />2. Use a commaplus a joining word to connect the two complete thoughts.<br />Ex: My grades are very good this semester, but my social life rates only a C.<br />
  28. 28. Correcting Run-Ons<br />3. Use a semi-colon to connect the two complete thoughts.<br />Ex: My grades are very good this semester; my social life rates only a C.<br />
  29. 29. Correcting Run-Ons<br />4. Use subordination (make one clause dependent by adding a dependent word at the beginning or in between the complete thoughts).<br />Ex: Although My grades are very good this semester, my social life rates only a C.<br />Ex: My grades are very good this semester although my social life rates only a C.<br />
  30. 30. Practice Correcting Run-Ons<br />Complete the following activities now:<br />Method 1: Practice 2, p. 40, #2, 4, 6, and 8.<br />Method 2: Practice 1, p. 42, #1, 3, 5, and 8<br />Practice 2, p. 43, all<br />You have 20 min to complete these and then we will go over them together.<br />We will review and practice methods 3 and 4 next class.<br />
  31. 31. Method 1: Activity, p. 362, #2, 4, 6, and 8<br />2. . . . increasing. Every eight seconds . . . <br />4. . . .smell of death about it. Half the stores . . .<br />6. . . water. This amount . . .<br />8. . . . fifteen times. Nobody felt. . . <br />
