9 Continuing to organize… Step 3: Determine what you would recommend (*Don’t worry—this can change—just put down your ideas for now) Step 4: Brainstorm the reasons why you would recommend these actions. Step 5: For each reason, brainstorm ideas that a critic might say against your reason. What are the counterclaims? Step 6: You should have been checking in with a partner at each step, but this is a really important time to get it double checked by your partner to make sure you are in a solid place to move on and have completed each step so far.
10 INFORMATION GATHERING STEPS: Step 7: Go back to the “introduction.” Look through your notes to determine if you have any information that would help you to define or clarify the words you chose earlier.If you DO have information, write down the source title on a sticky note and make a note to yourself about what that source includes.If you DO NOT have information that you can use, put a BLANK sticky note there to remind you that you need to find information on this source.Step 8: Now look at the “background” section. Look through your notes to determine if you have any information that would provide good information here.Add in sticky notes like you did for Step 7.
11 INFO GATHERING:Step 9: Look at the “recommendations” section. Look through your notes to determine if you have any information that would provide good information here. Step 10: Look at the “counterclaims” section. Look through your notes to determine if you have any information that would provide good information here.
12 HW:Work on finding sources to fill in any “gaps” in your research. Now that you have a better idea of how to categorize your information, you know what you still need to find info on.
13 Exit:Write one thing that you accomplished today. Write one thing that you still need work on or what your confusions are.
14 Then determine if each sentence needs a comma and where to put it Then determine if each sentence needs a comma and where to put it. If no comma is needed, write “correct”REMINDER: Introductory clauses need a comma after them. If you have a dependent clause followed by an independent clause, it needs a comma.Every day Ms. Stitt drinks coffee.Every day, Ms. Stitt drinks coffee.Though she doesn’t need it she likes to drink it.Though she doesn’t need it, she likes to drink it.Once in awhile she’ll have tea instead.Once in awhile, she’ll have tea instead.
