Week of 12/10-12/14 (Essays–Writing Hooks, Introductions, and Conclusions, Mentor Sentence, Finish Liar, Liar)


This week, we will continue to draft our essays on our own personal character traits.  Students should have already rewritten their three body paragraphs with the revisions their partners gave to them.

On Wednesday, we will begin drafting the introduction and conclusion paragraphs.  Students will look at Mr. Melvin’s model and many other examples of hooks.

Here is Mr. Melvin’s model of an introductory paragraph, containing a hook to grab the reader’s attention, some background information (defining either character traits or positive people) and a thesis statement (I am a positive person because C1+C2+C3).

Mr. Melvin used a rhetorical question for his hook.  We will study those and 4 more types of hooks for Wednesday.

On Thursday, we will visit the library.  We will also work on Conclusions and read chapter 10 and 11 of Liar, Liar.
