    10. 10. Activity 1, p. 330-331<br />1. 1-4<br />2. sentence 5<br />3. Yes<br />4. physically hard, pay poor, working conditions dreadful <br />
    11. 11. Introductory Paragraphs, p. 331<br />Common ways to introduce your topic:<br />broad statement<br />contrast<br />relevance<br />anecdote<br />questions<br />quotation<br />
    12. 12. Supporting Paragraphs, p. 333<br />Most essays have three supporting points.<br />Each supporting point should be developed in its own paragraph, with its own topic sentence.<br />Each supporting point should be developed with specific details and examples, just like any paragraph.<br />
    13. 13. Activity, 2, p. 333<br />Review the body paragraphs of the model essay and answer the three questions:<br />1. 7<br />2. 14<br />3. 20<br />
    14. 14. Transitional Sentences, p. 333<br />In paragraphs, transitional words and phrases help the reader to follow the writer’s thoughts.<br />In essays, transitional sentences, help to connect the supporting paragraphs.<br />They are usually found at the end of a body paragraph (and sometimes at the beginning, as part of the topic sentence).<br />
    15. 15. Transitional Sentences, p. 333<br />Ex: I would not have minded the difficulty of the work so much if the pay had not been so poor.<br />The word “difficulty” refers back to the first body paragraph’s topic – the physical demands of the job.<br />The last part of the sentence shifts the focus to the new topic for the second body paragraph – the low pay.<br />
    16. 16. Activity 3, p. 334<br />Read the example. Then complete the following statement:<br />In the sentence above, the keywords [low pay] echo the point of the second supporting paragraph, and the keywords [working conditions] announce the topic of the third supporting paragraph.<br />
    17. 17. Concluding Paragraph, p. 334 <br />Begins by summarizing or restating the thesis.<br />Leaves the reader with a final thought or thoughts.<br />
    18. 18. Activity 4, p. 334<br />1. 27<br />2. 28<br />
    19. 19. Practice, p. 341<br />Thesis Statements<br />Just like a topic sentence, a thesis statement has two parts:<br />The topic + the writer’s attitude, opinion, idea or point about the topic.<br />Ex: Celebritiesare often poor role models.<br />topicwriter’s opinion<br />
    20. 20. Activity 5, p. 341<br />For each thesis statement, underline the topic once and the writer’s point twice.<br />1. teachers / played important roles<br />2. loneliness / have certain benefits<br />3. owning old car / special rewards<br />4. learning to write / takes work, patience and a sense of humour.<br />5. advertisers / use clever techniques to promote their message<br />
    21. 21. Activity 5, p. 341<br />For each thesis statement, underline the topic once and the writer’s point twice.<br />6. Anger / results from a . . . . <br />7. sale of handguns / should be limited . . .<br />8. study habits/ benefited greatly from . . .<br />9. retired people / must cope with . . . of being old<br />10. parents / should take steps . . to encourage the children to enjoy reading.<br />Notice that some thesis statements include the “plan” and others don’t.<br />
    22. 22. Practice, p. 342<br />Supporting the Thesis with Specific Evidence<br />prewriting / outlining is even more important for writing essays than for writing paragraphs.<br />in taking the time to do even a “scratch” outline, you will discover whether or not you have enough support for your thesis.<br />
    23. 23. Activity 6, p. 342 (Student Answers)<br />1. mental problems, bad teachers<br />2. wants to get rid of my dog, makes too many, only allows laundry once a week<br />3. generosity, tolerance, patience, ambitious, organization, <br />4. [meeting new teachers], dealing with administration, testing, new routines, getting lost <br />5. not ready for responsibility, not enough money, not enough experience/not mature enough<br />
    24. 24. In-class Assignment <br />Choose one (1) of the following topics and write 1) a thesis statement and 2) a scratch outline for it:<br />an addictive habit<br /> Example: <br />Thesis Statement: My obsession with coffee is ruining my life<br />1-I cannot function without it<br />2-I spend all my money on it<br />3- I have many health problems from it.<br />when parents work<br />a volunteer experience<br />the value of pets<br />a problem at school or work<br />handling anger (or another emotion)<br />a time when you surprised yourself<br />
