  • The topics for this unit

    are the quiz, sentence fragments, and brainstorming.

    But first, we will go over some terms from the writing process.

    Hint: these terms are also on the quiz, so it’s important to know and understand them.


  • Terms on the quiz:

  • Writing process

  • Brainstorming

  • Pre-writing technique

  • The quiz is only 5 questions, all T/F.


  • Class, first question:

  • Is writing the process or the product?

    • The question is asking if writing is an ongoing process with steps to complete or is writing the end, the result, the finished product?


Answer

  • Is writing the process or the product?

  • It is the process of creating an essay, for example, and the steps needed to create the finished product.


Question

  • Class, what is brainstorming?

  • Please type responses now.


  • During brainstorming, the writer –

    that is you – generates raw ideas.

    During brainstorming, you write down whatever you can think of that will apply to your topic.


  • Is brainstorming just choosing a topic?

  • Please respond now.


  • NOPE!

  • First you choose a topic; then you brainstorm ideas for that topic.

  • You start with a topic but then generate ideas.

  • This is what brainstorming is all about.


  • Class, what is the writing process?

  • Please type responses now.


  • The writing process - The step-by-step process anyone can follow in order to complete a writing assignment, whether it's for a class or a workplace project.


  • We begin with the understanding that writing is a process, not a product. By this we mean that the action of writing goes through several steps or phases. It is like following a path with clearly designated markers along the way.

  • You have a “final destination” already in mind -- your professional autobiography -- but choosing how you get there is up to you!


  • Class, what are pre-writing techniques?

  • Please type responses now.


  • Pre-writing techniques are the various ways we can brainstorm.

  • Should you try only one pre-writing technique?


  • NOPE!!

  • You should try as many pre-writing techniques as you need in order to get started with your essay.


Pre-Writing Techniques

  • Jot lists

  • Free-writing

  • Mapping

  • Tape recorders or voice to text software


A little review

  • What is a sentence?


  • A sentence is a complete thought.

  • A sentence has a subject and a verb at the very least.


  • What is a fragment?


  • A fragment is an incomplete thought.

  • After I went to the store.

  • Because it rained today.

  • Ran the vacuum.

  • Although all of the word groups have a period at the end, they are NOT sentences; they are fragments or incomplete thoughts.


  • What is a run-on sentence?


A run on sentence is two or more sentences run together without proper punctuation.

  • First I went to the store then I went to the library the library was closed however the bank was open so I stopped there instead.

  • There are at least 4 sentences run together without proper punctuation.


  • First I went to the store. Then I went to the library. The library was closed. However, the bank was open, so I stopped there instead.


  • What is a comma splice?


  • A comma splice is when a comma is placed incorrectly between two sentences instead of using a period or a semi-colon.


  • The library was closed, however, the bank was open, so I stopped there instead.

    Correction:

  • The library was closed; however, the bank was open, so I stopped there instead.

  • The library was closed. However, the bank was open, so I stopped there instead.
