English 10: Concept Map and Extended Response Assignment

Today, we introduced the idea of a concept map. I explained and went through an example. You then got in groups, were assigned a question, and began working on constructing your own concept map. It was a bit like organized chaos on paper.

We will finish on Monday and present.

You have an assignment due on Monday by 11:59 p.m. to turnitin.com. It is an extended response from one of the discussion questions you answered yesterday (that handout with all the questions is linked in the last post). You will be writing 3-4 paragraphs (1 intro, 1-2 body paragraphs, and 1 conclusion) that answers that question analytically and using evidence to support your thesis/claim. Here’s an example.
