					 4 th   Quarter EXAM

 Tuesday – Periods 1 & 3
Wednesday – Periods 2 & 4
 Thursday – Periods 5 & 6
        Don’t take it lightly…
 a great exam grade can boost your
grade, or a poor grade can bring you
               down!!
       Can you explain what an
    expository essay is made up of?
• Hook/ Attention getter
• Background information
• Thesis Statement
• Topic Sentence
• Examples with supporting details for each which
  elaborate
• Reflection transitioning to next paragraph
• Restatement of thesis is part of a conclusion
• Need more?
                   Introduction
• Just like the opening scene of a film or an inviting
  entrance of a hotel, the introduction of an essay should
  be gripping. You can state an interesting fact, an
  intriguing question or some exciting news that made you
  think about the topic. (Hook)
• Purpose of the introduction is to tell the reader what
  your essay is about. Briefly writing about what you would
  be discussing in your essay is the Background.
• The ending sentence would be your main thesis
  statement. Thesis statement is a short and specific
  sentence that is basically your original idea (that you
  come up with, after research) and it has to be arguable,
  not a fact.
                 Body / Main Idea
• The body of an essay is made up of a number of
  paragraphs. This is where you write about the topic and
  support your thesis statement. Each paragraph should have
  one sub topic only, from your thesis statement.
• Start off with introducing a main idea topic, give supporting
  examples, opinions, facts, analysis. After each example, you
  must elaborate and give details! Then end the paragraph
  with the sub topic’s conclusion. Use connecting phrases to
  add similar points; as, in addition to, furthermore etc.
• To connect two statements that differ use transitional
  phrases e.g. however, nonetheless, on the other hand,
  whereas etc. Words like consequently, as a result, therefore
  help in concluding an idea.
                   Conclusion
• Like the beginning, the closing paragraph of a good
  essay should also be appealing or stimulating. But
  the purpose is only to conclude whatever you tried
  to explain in the light of examples and restate your
  thesis statement.
• Keep the conclusion clear and specific. Do not
  introduce new ideas at this point. Summarize the
  main points in very short sentences and make the
  conclusion compact.
• You can mention the significance of implication of
  your main ideas and write something in the end that
  would simmer in the reader’s mind like an interesting
  quotation or relevant example supporting the thesis.
           In your Notebook…
• Make a WEBLINE for an Expository Essay Main
  idea paragraph…
• Include and name all the parts… you have 3
  minutes.




• Times up…does it look something like this..?
   Main Idea Paragraph Webline:
        • _________________________
              Topic of Paragraph
Example 1-
• Details:
Example 2-
• Details:
Example 3-
• Details:
Write and complete this Webline for a
 body paragraph in your notebook:
 • Topic: Getting a “study buddy” can help you
               before taking a test.
Example 1- encourage each other
• Details:____________________________
Example 2- review together
• Details:____________________________
Example 3- help you understand hard material
• Details: ____________________________
Here is where many of you fall short in
            your writing.
  Elaborating the details after each
              example…
Example 1- encourage each other
• Details: a) make a bet between each other to
  do your best; b) set times and dates
to get together and review

Without details, it’s a “grocery list”
     How about this EXAMPLE…
Example 2- review together
• Details: a) make flashcards ; b) share and
  compare class notes; c) make sample test
  questions for each other
     And what do you have for this
             EXAMPLE?
Example 3- help you understand hard material
• Details: a) explain material in another way; b)
  go to a “tutoring” session together
If you don’t elaborate your examples,
    you’ll get this for a paragraph…
     Getting a friend for a ‘Study Buddy” can
 definitely help you do better on a test. First of all,
 study buddies encourage each other. Next, having
 a buddy is a good way to review together. Finally,
 if you have a buddy, they can help you
 understand material that is hard to understand.
 These are three very good reasons for having a
 study buddy when it comes time for a test.
    (Like my transitions in the paragraph??)
              Yuck! No more list…
•      Getting a friend for a ‘Study Buddy” can definitely
    help you do better on a test. First of all, study buddies
    encourage each other. They help each other get
    motivated to do their best by setting a time and day to
    review. Next, having a buddy is a good way to review
    together. One way you can review is to go over your
    notes and make flash cards. Another is to create
    sample questions. Finally, if you have a buddy, they can
    help you understand material that is hard to
    understand. Very often if someone takes the time to go
    over something, it’s easier to understand. Although if
    you still have a tough time getting it, then a study
    buddy can go to tutoring with you and then help you
    understand better with a teacher’s help. These are
    three very good reasons for having a study buddy when
    it comes time for a test.

so don’t write lengthy sentences. Use
             bullet points
