  • Standards:
    • ELACC8W1: Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
    • ELACC8SL4: Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with relevant evidence, sound valid reasoning, and well-chosen details; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume and clear pronunciation.
    • ELACC8L1: Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
    • ELACC8L6: Acquire and use accurately grade-appropriate general academic and domain-specific words and phrases; gather vocabulary knowledge when considering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression.
    • ELACC8W4: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. (Grade-specific expectations for writing types are defined in standards 1-3 above.)
    • ELACC8W5: With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed. (Editing for conventions should demonstrate command of Language standards 1-3 up to and including grade 6 on page 52.)
    • ELACC8W7: Conduct short research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question), drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allow for multiple avenues of exploration.
  • Let’s read from The Project.

    • Find the examples of DRAPES with the steps below:
      • Step 1: DIALOGUE (circle)
        • EX: “Do or do not. There is no try.”
      • Step 2: RHETORICAL QUESTIONS (underline)
        • EX: Would you want to live in filth?
      • Step 3: ANALOGIES (wavy line)

        • When I was younger, I experienced bullying like many kids do today.
      • Step 5: EXAMPLES and FACTS (put brackets [])
        • [Nearly half of all students believe in changing school lunch options.]

  • What examples of DRAPES did you find?
    • Let’s use the ELMO to share with the rest of the class.
  • A continuation of each research group’s presentations.
  • Choice Board: The students will choose the assignment to illustrate their understanding of DRAPES based on their interests. The students will choose from creating an illustration of DRAPES, writing a rap/song/poem, creating a how-to manual for struggling learners, create a DRAPES game, or design a task (with teacher approval). This, as with all homework is due Friday.
