What color highlighters would you use on the following paragraph?

You need to stop giving us too much homework. We complain because of the amount. Kids just skip their homework because they have practice or “better things to do.”

e very sentence is a topic sentence and should begin a new paragraph

This is a Level 1 paragraph…

Every sentence is a topic sentence and should begin a new paragraph!

(“lack of development”)

You need to stop giving us too much homework. We complain because of the amount. Kids just skip their homework because they have practice or “better things to do.”

We must add subtopics and development (DRAPES).

Another reason we complain about homework is the amount you give us. How much we have to do is not fair. We complete too many problems in math each night. We dislike all of this work.

there are only blue and red sentences we must add elaboration drapes

This is a Level 2 paragraph…

There are only blue and red sentences. We must add elaboration (DRAPES).

(“minimal development”)

Another reason we complain about homework is the amount you give us. How much we have to do is not fair. We complete too many problems in math each night. We dislike all of this work.

  • For every red sentence, try to add AT LEAST one green DRAPES sentence!

Another reason we complain about homework is the amount you give us. How much we have to do is not fair. After a long day at school, I don’t want to work another two or three hours because I’m tired. Each night, we complete too many problems in math. Why should we complete 30 word problems if you can tell we know the material in 10? We dislike all of this work.

This is a Level 3 paragraph…

(“sufficient development”)

Anotherreason we complain about homework is the amount you give us. How much we have to do is not fair. After a long day at school, I don’t want to work another two or three hours because I’m tired. (P) Each night, we complete too many problems in math. Why should we complete 30 word problems if you can tell we know the material in 10? (R) We dislike all of this work.

For every red sentence, there is

ONE greenDRAPES sentence.

An additional reason we complain about homework is the quantity you give us. How much we have to do is not fair. After a long day at school, I don’t want to work another two or three hours because I’m tired. Even 30 minutes of work for each subject quickly becomes two hours of additional time out of our day. Our workload in math makes the problem worse as we do too much. Why should we complete 30 word problems if you can tell we know the material in 10? I know that reducing our workload to only a few problems would give us the desire to complete all of our assignments. We could become better students if you thought about your assignments.

This is a Level 4paragraph…

(“consistent development”)

An additional reason we complain about homework is the quantity you give us. How much we have to do is not fair.After a long day at school, I don’t want to work another two or three hours because I’m tired. (P) Even 30 minutes of work for each subject quickly becomes two hours of additional time out of our day. (S) Our workload in math makes the problem worse as we do too much.Why should we complete 30 word problems if you can tell we know the material in 10? (R) I know that reducing our workload to only a few problems would give us the desire to complete all of our assignments. (P)We could become better students if you thought about your assignments.

For every red sentence, there are

TWO greenDRAPES sentence.

What color highlighters would you use on the following paragraph?

An additional reason we complain about homework is the quantity of worksheets you give us. How much we have to do is not fair to us or to our families. After a long day at school, I don’t want to work another two or three hours because I’m tired, and my family wants to have some time to talk together. Even 30 minutes of work for each subject quickly becomes two hours of additional time out of our day, and I may miss the family meal. Additionally, our workload in math makes the problem worse as we struggle to complete assignments. Why should we complete 30 complicated word problems if you can tell that we know the material in 10? I know that reducing our workload to only a few problems would give us the desire to complete all of our assignments and turn them in on time. We could become better students if you thought about your requirements of our time out of school.

slide19

This is a Level 5 paragraph… (“full development”)

An additional reason we complain about homework is the quantity of worksheets you give us. How much we have to do is not fair to us or to our families. After a long day at school, I don’t want to work another two or three hours because I’m tired (P), and my family wants to have some time to talk together (P). Even 30 minutes of work for each subject quickly becomes two hours of additional time out of our day (S), and I may miss the family meal (P). Additionally, our workload in math makes the problem worse as we struggle to complete assignments. Why should we complete 30 complicated word problems if you can tell that we know the material in 10 (R)? Iknow that reducing our workload to only a few problems would give us the desire to complete all of our assignments and turn them in on time (P). We could become better students if you thought about your requirements of our time out of school.
