Hurston Timed Writing (9/22/2011)

For the most part, SOLID JOB! Most of you showed a great deal of skill and knowledge of the book.


Basic scoring rubric

Basic Scoring Rubric

  • Did you answer the prompt with some degree of organization?

  • Did you plan a response and follow some of your prewriting?

  • Did you supply accurate and ample details to prove you read the novel?

  • 10/10 and 15/15 were reserved for “WOW” responses.


Organizationally

Organizationally…

  • …OMG! Use paragraphs with topic sentences! Each prompt has a basic task; identify this in your topic sentence.

  • “Tea Cake and Janie face substantial conflicts as the novel concludes.” Others might read, “Tea Cake and Jody both loved Janie, but they displayed their emotions differently.”


Supporting details

Supporting Details…

Show me don’t tell me!

What makes Tea Cake a better husband than Jody? What makes Jody oppressive? GIVE ME DETAILS, NOT EMPTY STATEMENTS!


Support your statements by replacing adjectives with verbs

Support your statements by replacing adjectives with verbs.

  • Tea Cake is nice and showed Janie his super niceness.

  • Tea cake tells Janie she is beautiful; he also brings her into the fields with him simply because he misses her company.


Yikes you missed it

Yikes…you missed it.

  • If you can’t tell me the accurate ending to the book, don’t create a fictitious one. I’ll know. The way to remedy this is to ACTUALLY READ THE BOOK!

  • Also, major challenges had to include the HURRICANE to score full credit.


The next time we write

The next time we write…

  • 1. Grammar needs to be edited and demonstrate our in-class lessons.

  • 2. Homophone errors (There Eyes Where Watching God) will result in larger point losses.

  • 3. Lack of detailed support will be a more punitive loss.

  • 4. Maybe use some SHARE?


So you sparknoted your way through this

So you Sparknoted your way through this…

  • Congrats. Your commitment is “Aws.”

  • We will address this novel in more depth during The Harlem Renaissance.

  • If there was a comprehension issue, a dialect issue, a time issue, an eye issue, a lost book issue, a phantasm issue, a Dublin book thief issue, why didn’t I know this in the first 12 days of school?


But i m too negative

But I’m too negative!

  • I think for the most part, the majority of you read and handled the prompt with ease. Well done, especially with little being said about the novel before the prompt.

  • We are very bright and insightful in here--it’s going to be a great year!


For tuesday and trl

For Tuesday and TRL!

  • 1. Develop a strategy for addressing a compare and contrast format.

  • 2. Establish a thesis for HOW items will be compared.

  • 3. Construct paragraphs in a block format OR a ping-pong format.

  • 4. Be the expert by showing details and organization.
