Contextualization

Contextualization

  • It provides adequate background information to your reader. It helps your reader have the necessary information to understand your quote.

  • Your contextualization should be written for someone who has never read your book. This ensures that your reader is “on the same page” as you.

  • You should answer the following questions in your contextualization to help your reader understand your quote:

    • What is happening at this point of the story (in your quote)?

    • What is this quote about?

    • Why is this quote important? In other words, why is it included in your essay?

    • Who is speaking and who are they referring to? (introduce your quote)

  • There is a fine balance between too much and too little contextualization!

Essay Question: __________________________________________________________________

Introduction Part One:

1. Your introduction needs to include a hook (a juicy quote, or a broad question that engages the reader with the general topic of your essay, but is not yet specifically about your thesis statement or the text. The hook needs to be connected to the thesis and the text, but is much more broad than the thesis.

1a. ExampleHook: The World Bank estimates that 456 million Indians (41.6% of the total Indian population) now live under the global poverty line of US$ 1.25 per day. This means that a third of the global poor now reside in India.

2. Lead-In: Your lead-in is a sentence or two that builds a connection between your hook and your thesis statement for the reader of your essay.

2a. Example: VikasSwarup brings this statistic to life in his gripping novel, Q & A. This books is a representation of the lives of India’s poor and their struggle to have recognition and status.

Objective: by the end of this lesson,2. describe and execute the expectations for a writer’s workshop;3. evaluate your essay and three peers’ essays based on the criteria of the rubric and your assigned role (warm feedback, cool feedback summarizer);

What is Writer’s Workshop?

  • It is a process writers’ use to gain positive and constructive feedback on their work in order to revise and improve their essays.

  • For this activity, you have been placed in a group students that you will work with to receive feedback on your essay and to give feedback on three of your peers’ essays.

  • There are four roles throughout this process. You will serve as every role: the Writer, the Encourager (provides warm feedback), the Respectful Critique (provides cool feedback), and the Summarizer.

  • You will receive written feedback from your group members, which you will use to revise your essay. This feedback will also be submitted with your Unit Two Essay Portfolio.


Writing group procedures

Objective: by the end of this lesson,2. describe and execute the expectations for a writer’s workshop;

Writing Group Procedures:

All roles will rotate– every one will get the chance to fill each of the roles during each round. Follow these steps in order to complete one round of Writer’s Workshop:

  • Decide who will be which role first --- Writer, Encourager, Respectful Critique, and Summarizer.

  • The writer distributes a copy of his/her essay to group members and reads his/her essay out loud with a pen in hand! If you notice something you want to change, the writer may stop (briefly and periodically) to make notes to him/herself as they may notice things about their essay as they read.

    • Other roles: make edits/notes on his/her essay. Mark it up! You will be giving this essay to him/her to use for revisions. Do not interrupt the writer as s/he is reading; you will ask questions /comments afterwards.

    • Depending on your role, be thinking about the specific type of feedback you are going to give.

  • After the writer finishes reading aloud, if any of the group members have level 1, clarifying questions, you may ask the writer these (and get them answered) at this time.

  • Each group member follows the guidelines on his/her role card and begins completing his/her feedback worksheet for the writer. Make sure you put your name on this sheet; the writer might have follow-up questions!

  • The writer then re-reads his/her essay again to the group. This time, the other roles may fill out the worksheet as the writer is reading…

  • After the writer finishes reading aloud group members can take a couple of minutes to finish filling out their feedback worksheets.

  • Group members read their feedback and explain it to the Writer. Discuss each feedback as a group; do you agree or disagree, even if you weren’t in this role?

  • Writer staples completed feedback forms (three --- Summarizer, Encourager, and Critique) and the other group members’ copies of the essay to his/her original essay, which the Writer read from.

  • Repeat this process for the next Writer --- everyone else switches roles as well.
