11 SEPT 2014 BELL ACTIVITY: JOURNAL: 15 -18 OR MORE COMPLETE LINES. Superheroes are a popular concept in entertainment right now. Some Superheroes have mutant or alien superpowers (Superman, Spiderman, The Hulk, Thor) others are simply exceptionally skilled or have fantastic inventions that give them extra strength and speed (Batman, Ironman, Hawkeye, the Black Widow). PROMPT: Describe the superpower you would possess if you had the choice. What would you do with that power? What would be your weakness (every superhero has a weakness) or limitations? What might be the negative aspects of having a superpower? Today’s Agenda: Prompts to T-charts to Paragraphs
REVIEW…… A ______________________________ makes an excellent pet. I. II.
So far I have asked you to compose t-charts to a pre-written claim, but starting the t-chart by writing the claim in response to a prompt is a little more difficult. To write a simple claim sentence use the following steps: 1. Consider the prompt. 2. Write your answer in the form of an opinion. 3. Reread. Is it an arguable opinion? Is it broad enough to prove with at least 2 warrants and 4-5 points of evidence?
