               • Do your BEST
       The TEST is

But wait……………let’s review a
       few things……
Sequence?
    the 8 step
 Use
 ATTACK PLAN.
 1. The Prompt
 2. Narrative Story
 3. Expository Text
 4. Crossover
 5. Examine the visual
 6. Back to the Draft
 7. Turn in Dictionary
 8. Revising and editing
          1. The Prompt

1.   UNDERSTAND. (dictionary)
2.   Personalize: ? to yourself
3.   THINK, THINK, THINK
4.   ORGANIZE
5.   WRITE a draft. (First person, details.)
Let’s talk about how


    to get a four on
       the ESSAY!
The essay is where you show
off your writing talents.


 Read the prompt at least
  twice!
 Use your dictionary.
Be sure to answer EXACTLY
what they are asking. (Watch for
the sneaky second part.)
   It is usually asking you to
   explain WHY something is
            important.

 What is your most boring class in high school and how
 would you change the curriculum to make it more
 interesting.
               So…….

Do you agree or disagree with the
        statement????
Now think of a Personal
Experience that is an
example of your agreement
or disagreement of the
prompt.
NEXT>>>>


        Write a thesis
  statement



        Then an OUTLINE
NEXT>>>>

  Begin writing the BODY of
    your essay ---the
    experience that proves
    your opinion.
      Now tell why it
       happened
      How it happened
      How it ended
Whew!!




That’s a lot of
rough draft
 writing.
When the body is done…..
HOOK your reader!
   Add an INTRODUCTION
    that will knock their
    socks off!!
     Begin  with dialogue
     Introduce a character

         a description or
     Give
     background
Begin near the problem…huh?




          Example…..
   I found the corpse this
morning. We’d been
searching for two weeks.
I’m glad its over. It’s
amazing how it all
started.
Here’s what really happened…
(boring, boring, boring)

    Two weeks ago my
 sister’s hamster escaped
 from her room. I thought the
 cat ate it. We searched the
 entire house. Finally, my
 mom found it behind the
 dryer. This was one
 adventure I’ll never forget!!
Were you hooked?


  Be sure to write a story that
 captures the attention of the
            reader.
   It could be just one or two sentences.
Here are some suggestions:

   Reiterate how you feel about the
    subject
   Make a prediction
   Explain what you learned from
    the experience
   Use a universal word: all,
    everyone, every day, every time
   Circle back to the “hook”
   Draw a conclusion from the
    example
So you think
you’re done with the ESSAY????
 Add some details to your
 story………..


For example === here’s a
 sentence.

    The man walked to the store.
Which man? How did he go?
Where did he go? Why did
he go?




The crazy, old man walked to the store.
 The crazy, old man pushed
    his cart to the store.


The crazy, old man pushed his cart
   to the 7-11 so that he could
        buy a lottery ticket.
Doesn’t that sound

    A little more interesting???
 What’s the highest
score possible on the
      ESSAY?
                        4
