“I like to go to school because it is fun.”

  • “I like to go to school because it is fun when the teacher allows us to do experiments with frogs.”
  • “I like to go to school because it is fun when the teacher allows us to do experiments with frogs. We learned what kind of foods frogs like to eat by offering them flies, worms and seeds. We observed the frogs during the morning and afternoon to determine when they were more active. We also compared frogs to other amphibians to see what characteristics they share.”
  • “I like to go to school because it is fun when the teacher allows us to do experiments with frogs instead of just reading about them in books. We learned what kinds of foods frogs like to eat by offering them flies, worms, and seeds and observed them during different hours to determine when they were more active.”

We learned what kind of foods frogs like to eat by offering them flies, worms, and seeds and observed them during different hours to determine when they were more active. Experiments allow us to have the fun of discovering for ourselves how far and fast these slimy creatures can jump and what kinds of foods they like to eat.”

Language Arts teachers each need an assistant to help with grading. In a typical teacher’s day, she has so much work. Think about grading one paper. If I have all my students write one paper and it takes me 5 minutes to grade each one, it will take just over 9 hours to grade those papers. An assistant will solve this problem.

RAFT Assignment

Tell students that they have just left college and have landed their first job with the National Marine Sanctuary Program. It is their job to convince others that the shipwreck they evaluated in the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary should become a national landmark and national monument due to its historical and cultural significance. In the persuasive argument, students should not only refer to the National Park Service criteria, but also to #12 and #18 on the Frequently Asked Questions webpage to highlight the benefits, both to the vessel and to the public, of designation. Also, students should include information about why shipwrecks are historically significant and what people can learn by preserving them. Students will create essays to present their ideas. Remind students to keep the criteria in mind. Also, remind students that they are trying to persuade the selection committee to select that particular shipwreck.
