11 RECORD AND REPRESENT KNOWLEDGE Use the provided paper to create a possible collaborative plan for the 9 th grade writing task. Remember to first unpack the prompt, create a t-chart, and establish a purpose for reading. As a team, please come to consensus before your plan is written on the paper. Each person should choose a different color marker. Every color should be represented on the graphic organizer.

12 FEEDBACK  Pass your plan to an adjacent table  Read the plan you received  Provide feedback on a sticky note  Place the sticky note on the back of the plan  Pass the plan to another table  Repeat the sticky note feedback method

13 STRUCTURE An academic paragraph should always begin with the topic and the point that is being made. There should then be a transition, followed by evidence from the text. The evidence should be followed by commentary. Commentary explains how the evidence supports the topic and the point. Again, there should be a transition, followed by evidence from the text. The evidence should again be followed by commentary. For more advanced writers, this could be repeated again. Or, the body paragraph may then be concluded by restating the topic and the point.
