17 November: Essential Writing Choice 2

Objective:

I can pull textual evidence to support my analysis of a text and write to explain how the stylistic choices made by the author highlight big ideas (RL 1, 2, & 4).


What’s Going On:

Throughout this unit we are balancing a variety of complex tasks: analyzing authors’ styles, identifying how texts fit into specific genres, and considering what our unit texts have to say about our humanity.


Today you will write your second Essential write for the unit focusing on Head’s The Man Who Wore Glasses or García Márquez’s A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings.


Before you begin, open your previous writing to view your score and feedback I have left you. Use this feedback to improve during your second write. Remind yourself of the template and refer to the example as needed.


Exit Task:

Review the rubric and your writing to ensure you have completed your best work and submit your writing through Google Classroom. If you have time remaining, you may return to your first essential write to revise and edit for an improved score.
