Objective: to conduct research on a famous person

to effectively quote and paraphrase

Grab the "Quotation Verbs" sheet from the front table. Get a piece of scrap paper too. Put your name on both. Copy five quotation verbs you may use in your paper into your notebook. Get your sources out.

OUTLINES

DUE MONDAY

Come See the Biggest Waves in the Northeastern U.S.!

There's much summer fun to be had at Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark in Eastern PA. The rides and slides at Camelbeach range from mild to wild. Pharoah's Phortress is a family play structure with 8 waterslides, a 4-story-high tipping bucket, fountains, spray guns, and a lot more! The Titan is an enormous waterslide that stands 8 stories tall and encompasses nearly three football fields in length. Recently debuted in 2001, the Kahuna Lagoon is a giant wave pool that features the biggest waves in the Northeastern U.S.! Booking a corporate outing (i.e.: company picnic) is no problem at Camelbeach. Choose from an extensive picnic menu, which includes anything from hot dogs to New York strip steaks. Best of all, Camelbeach can accommodate parties of 50 to 10,000 people! After the park closes, you can host a Beach Bash along the water at Kahuna Lagoon. Food, beverages, entertainment, games, contests, and dancing will make it a night to remember!

Sightly notes, " Choose from an extensive picnic menu, which includes anything from hot dogs to New York strip steaks " (3).

" Choose from an extensive picnic menu, which includes anything from hot dogs to New York strip steaks " (Sightly 3).

" Choose from an extensive picnic menu, which includes anything from hot dogs to New York strip steaks," states Steve Sightly (3).

slide12

Attention getter:

option #1- quote from your person or about your person

option #2- short anecdote (interesting story) about your person

option #3- startling fact about your person

option #4- three to four adjectives to describe your person

Preview each body paragraph in a sentence each

for example:

Ellen Degeneres had a meager upbringing in New Orleans, Louisiana. (childhood)

She rose to comic fame after appearing on The Tonight Show. (rise to fame)

Her show Ellen is hugely popular and hilarious. (her show)

She is a giving person who helps her show guests and numerous charities. (effect of society- charity work)

thesis- copy from paper you got the first day of this unit when you picked your topic

no "I' or "you" - very long sentence- has influence idea in it.

for example:

Ellen Degeneres is a funny comedian who makes people laugh; her greatest work though is not on the stage, it is the charitable work she does to help children and families.

Ellen Degeneres is so funny; she gives her audience bottled water and on the label, it says “Ellen Water: It tastes funny!”

slide13

Closing signal: To conclude, Furthermore, Overall, Therefore, In summary- try something NEW!

Restate thesis sentence (same ideas; different words)

this is my thesis: Ellen Degeneres is a funny comedian who makes people laugh; her greatest work though is not on the stage, it is the charitable work she does to help children and families.

this is my restatement of it:

Ellen Degeneres started her career in comedy, but after getting fame and fortune, she used her money to help those less fortunate.

Review body paragraphs (this can be one, two, or three sentences)

for example (one sentence):

Ellen Degeneres had a middle class upbringing, a quick rise to fame, and a successful talk show that is still running today.

for example (two sentences):

Ellen Degeneres had a middle class upbringing. After a quick rise to fame, she launched a successful talk show that is still running today.

Review influence paragraph topic

for example:

Degeneres is involved in many charities and gives away tons of gifts to audience members in need.

What can we learn from him or her (this is the implication, solution, suggestion)

Degeneres talks a lot about tolerance of differences and gives of her money freely; more people should live their lives the way Ellen does.

Poignant Concluding Sentence - go back to your attention getter and find a way to link it your topic

My attention getter was: Funny, smart, and giving are three words to describe comedian Ellen Degeneres.

My PCS: Ellen may be funny and smart, but her giving personality is why everyone should want to meet her some day!

Get your outline out. Put it on the upper left corner of your desk.

Paraphrase an idea from this passage:

One of the Great Waterparks in PA!

By Linda Shuck

The summer is not complete without a visit to one of PA's great water parks. Knoebels PA water park is great fun for the whole family. The waterpark's Crystal Pool has all sorts of waterslides and diving boards for your summer pleasure. One of the best rides is Skloosh!, a 16-passenger rubber craft that gets carried up a steep incline and launched down a water ramp. There's even a water park just for your little ones, as they can swim around in shallow water, enjoy fountains, and much more. Once you're done cooling off at the water park, you can dry off at one of the many roller-coasters and other amusement park rides at Knoebels. Best of all, admission is free!

~this article was on a website called travelPA.com on page 9

slide15

I paraphrased this idea, “The waterpark's Crystal Pool has all sorts of waterslides and diving boards for your summer pleasure.”

The Crystal Pool at Knoebel’s Amusement Resort has many waterslides and diving boards to cool you off on hot summer days (Shuck 9).
