Good afternoon all my wonderful Allagash students,
Today in class we went over what makes a claim strong and clear. We watched this youtube video and discussed it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-tOeh8n8yQ Copy this into your browser and watch it. Then we went over some claims to determine if they were powerful or not. Next, we look at some weak claim and the rewritten stronger ones, I have this copy here at school. In your coalition groups you rewrote a weak claim about school uniforms to make it strong, clear and arguable. Then we shared them and for the best one each person in the group received five tickets. Most of you made it hard to judge as you did a great job.
Lastly, you worked on your own claims with your coalition groups for a short period of time.
I hope to have you do more with them tomorrow.
1. Read and record # of pages. You must read at least FOUR nights between now and next Monday.
2. Continue to take notes that will support your claim and your three reasons.
Have a great evening,
