read the following passage carefully prepare yourself for a round of eoc type questions
Read the following passage carefully. Prepare yourself for a round of EOC type questions.

In the past, southern literature meant any writing about historical southern themes or life in the South. Most southern literature was written by authors who lived in the South. There were writers like Mark Twain who actually considered themselves southern writers even though they were not from southern states or had long departed the southern states where they were born. What many of the southern author’s stories had in common were themes like family, religion, and community. Some stories are also revolving around unsettling topics like slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. However, as the country grew and revolved so to did southern literature.

Students choose a topic of interest and develop a claim related to that topic.

Students write a paragraph using Toulmin’s Model to back up that claim.

Students submit their paragraph for teacher feedback and for student review.

Students critique each paragraph and vote on the best one for a tournament style review.

sample paragraph 1
Sample Paragraph 1

I think Chris brown is a multi talented artist. Chris Brown has made nine albums. He has also been in four movies and three television shows. Chris brown has sold four-million albums worldwide. This proves that he is a very talented singer and a lot of people enjoy listening to his music. In addition to the album sale, Chris Brown has also appeared in many television shows. This proves he is multi talented because, if he was not a good actor, he wouldn’t have numerous chances to be in movies and on T.V. shows. In conclusion, I think Chris brown is a multi talented artist. This can be proven because he has nine albums. This can also be proven because he has been in many movies and T.V. shows.

sample paragraph 2
Sample Paragraph 2

Joe Flacco is the best Quarter back who ever lived in the NFL. As matter of fact Joe Flacco just signed a $120.6 million dollar contract. When someone signs the biggest contract in NFL history, the person has to be better than all the others at what he does. Nobody has signed a 120.6 million dollar contract like Joe Flacco. Not to mention Joe Flacco is the second quarter back to throw 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions in one playoff run. The only other quarter back to do what Joe Flacco did is Joe Montana. That means Aaron Rogers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and Payton Manning that are called elite quarter backs did not do what Joe Flacco did. As was previously stated that Joe Flacco having the biggest salary in NFL and only being the second in NFL history to do what Joe Montana did tells us that he is the best at what he does in the NFL.

sample paragraph 2 revised
Sample Paragraph 2 Revised

Joe Flacco is a better quarterback than Tom Brady. According to ESPN Joe Flacco outplayed Tom Brady almost every time they played. Joe Flacco’s passing rating is nearly 100% against the Patriots while Tom Brady only has 72% against the Baltimore Ravens. Passer rating is the most accurate way to determine a quarterbacks skill. Not to mention Joe Flacco is the second quarterback to throw 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions in one playoff run. The only other quarterback to do what Joe Flacco did is Joe Montana, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. That means Tom Brady did not even do what Joe Flacco did, and he has been in the National Football League (NFL) for 13 years while Joe Flacco has only been in the NFL for 5 years. As was previously stated, Joe Flacco’s passer rating and playoff performance is better than Tom Brady’s making him the better quarterback.

Zweledinga is a small village located in the southeastern corner of South Africa. Use Google Earth to take a quick aerial visit. Like many communities in the developing world, Zweledinga’s needs are many. Recently, Village Corps, “a community development and investment company,” identified these areas of need: education, energy, food, water, healthcare, infrastructure, sanitation, employment.

The Problem: Despite Village Corps grand plans for investment, a lack of funds has forced the company to prioritize its aid. As of today, with a $20,000 budget, it will only be able invest in one of the areas of need listed on its web site. The question, then, is which one?

It is up to you and your classmates to convince the company and the community which area of need to focus on. Each student (or pair of students) should focus on a particular claim and should find data and develop warrants to back up that claim. Students should consider such things as financial outcomes, humanitarian outcomes (health, public wellbeing, etc…), short and long term outlooks, and counterarguments among other things. They do not, at this point, necessarily focus on creating a plan. All they have to do is argue why one of the areas is most important to a community.

To Quote or Not the Quote
  • There are four reasons why you might choose to quote a source directly:
  • Quote if you can’t say it any better and the author’s words.
  • Quote if you are using a particularly authoritative source.
  • Quote if you are analyzing diction, tone, or a writer’s use of a specific word or phrase.
  • Quote if you are taking a position that relies on the reader understanding exactly what another writer says about the topic.

Each group will receive a different “area of need.” Be sure to keep it a secret. As a group, come up with your best survey question. This question should avoid obvious biasness, but it should also try to give you the best results possible. Remember to consider your audience – what type of information are they interested in? Submit your question to the teacher for your live survey results.
