  • 7. If I know one thing, it’s bones! BONES!
  • 8. Before I tell you, what do put into an intro? Discuss in groups.

  • 10. We spend approximately 70% of our time in school, but some people think we need more time in school. However, lengthening more hours for school days has some disadvantages for students and teachers. First, students will lack private time if the school day is made longer. Second, students can study by themselves at home, so they don’t need a longer school day. Last, teachers will have to work longer—something that might make their work worse. Despite all the reasons against it such as a lack of private time, no time for home studying, and longer work hours, some still want to make the school day longer; I’ll explain why that’s a bad idea.

  • 12. There you have it! The ‘bones’ of an introduction! Now: Let’s Practice!
  • 13. In a well-written introduction to a five-paragraph essay, please answer the following question: When is it okay to ban books? Follow the “bones of the essay.”
  • 14. Now, let’s talk about citations!
  • 15.
    • (1) Give the title of the book, underlined. (2) Give the page number (with no symbols). (3) Period goes at end of closed parenthesis.
    • Example #1: “In the end, we’re all the same” ( The Freedom Writers Diary 38).
    • Example #2: An author in The Freedom Writers Diary states, “In the end, we’re all the same” (38).
  • 16.
    • What’s wrong with the following citations?
    • Example #1: “In the end, we’re all the same.” ( The Freedom Writers Diary p. 38)
    • Example #2: An author states, “In the end, we’re all the same” (38).
  • 17.
    • Now, let’s choose a random quote from FWD .
    • Write out the quote into a sentence and use a correct citation. Check your work with a neighbor.
    • Have me check your work when you’re done.
  • 18. A bony skeleton is important to hold an essay together, but an essay needs more than just bones: it needs muscle too!
  • 19. Here are some ideas to fill out your introduction! A quick, relevant:
  • 20. Let’s add some muscle to our bony introduction. Muscle shown in red.
  • 21.
    • We spend approximately 70% of our time in school, but some people think we need more time in school. However, lengthening more hours for school days has some disadvantages for students and teachers. First, students will lack private time if the school day is made longer. If students are in school all day, they won’t have any time to themselves—which can impact students negatively. Second, students can study by themselves at home, so they don’t need a longer school day. In fact, students can learn material more efficiently if they are given time to study the material on their own. Last, teachers will have to work longer—something that might make their work worse. It’s clear from my experience that teachers who work too many hours are worse teachers. Despite all the reasons against it such as a lack of private time, no time for home studying, and longer work hours, some still want to make the school day longer; I’ll explain why that’s a bad idea.
