3 Mr. Wise-g(eye) says…Let’s take a look at: TODAY’S “DO NOW”

4 Paragraph Organization What is the best order for these sentences? Share your organization of these sentences with your neighbor. (We will put them in order on the following slides.) Cut these 8 sentences into strips. Rearrange them so that they create a logical and coherent paragraph. After we have discussed this, you will paste the “real” paragraph with the correct sentence order into your notebook. 1.It is incredible to know that people could be putting their health at risk because they do not speak up when visiting their doctor. 2.They don’t want to appear ignorant in front of their “all-knowing” doctor, and they don’t want to take up too much of this Important Person’s time, so they say little and ask almost nothing. 3.Secondly, many people fail to ask their doctors for a full and clear explanation of their condition. 4.Many people are strangely passive when they visit a doctor. 5.They may barely describe their symptoms, believing that a skilled doctor—like a master car mechanic—will somehow easily be able to diagnose what is wrong with them. 6.First of all, they often fail to provide the doctor with complete information about their medical problem. 7.Studies show that many patients don’t understand why they should take a certain medication or for how long they should take it Last of all, they often fail to understand a doctor’s orders.

5 Rearranging Sentences into a Paragraph Which sentence should be first? Why? Sentence #4. It is the topic sentence. Which sentence should be second? Why? Sentence #6. It is the first reason. Which sentence should be next? Why? Sentence #5. It gives more information (“Why?”) about sentence #6. Which sentence should be next? Why? Sentence #3. It tells the second reason. (continued on next slide) Cut these 8 sentences into strips. Rearrange them so that they create a logical and coherent paragraph. After we have discussed this, you will paste the “real” paragraph with the correct sentence order into your notebook. 1.It is incredible to know that people could be putting their health at risk because they do not speak up when visiting their doctor. 2.They don’t want to appear ignorant in front of their “all-knowing” doctor, and they don’t want to take up too much of this Important Person’s time, so they say little and ask almost nothing. 3.Secondly, many people fail to ask their doctors for a full and clear explanation of their condition. 4.Many people are strangely passive when they visit a doctor. 5.They may barely describe their symptoms, believing that a skilled doctor—like a master car mechanic—will somehow easily be able to diagnose what is wrong with them. 6.First of all, they often fail to provide the doctor with complete information about their medical problem. 7.Studies show that many patients don’t understand why they should take a certain medication or for how long they should take it Last of all, they often fail to understand a doctor’s orders.

6 Rearranging Sentences into a Paragraph Which sentence should come after sentence #3? Why? Sentence #2. It gives more information (“Why?”) about the second reason. Which sentence should be next? Why? Sentence #8. It is the third and final reason. Which sentence should be after #8? Why? Sentence #7. It gives more information (“Why?”) about sentence #8. Which sentence should be last? Why? Sentence #1. It concludes the paragraph by restating the topic sentence. Cut these 8 sentences into strips. Rearrange them so that they create a logical and coherent paragraph. After we have discussed this, you will paste the “real” paragraph with the correct sentence order into your notebook. 1.It is incredible to know that people could be putting their health at risk because they do not speak up when visiting their doctor. 2.They don’t want to appear ignorant in front of their “all-knowing” doctor, and they don’t want to take up too much of this Important Person’s time, so they say little and ask almost nothing. 3.Secondly, many people fail to ask their doctors for a full and clear explanation of their condition. 4.Many people are strangely passive when they visit a doctor. 5.They may barely describe their symptoms, believing that a skilled doctor—like a master car mechanic—will somehow easily be able to diagnose what is wrong with them. 6.First of all, they often fail to provide the doctor with complete information about their medical problem. 7.Studies show that many patients don’t understand why they should take a certain medication or for how long they should take it. 8.Last of all, they often fail to understand a doctor’s orders.

7 Paragraph Organization This is what the final paragraph should look like. 1. Paste your sentence strips into your notebook in this order. 2. Next to each sentence, put a brief explanation as to why that sentence goes in the order that it is in. (Why does that sentence go in that order?) 3. Underneath the paragraph, write down 3 observations that you have about how it is written. Many people are strangely passive when they visit a doctor. First of all, they often fail to provide the doctor with complete information about their medical problem. They may barely describe their symptoms, believing that a skilled doctor—like a master car mechanic—will somehow easily be able to diagnose what is wrong with them. Secondly, many people fail to ask their doctors for a full and clear explanation of their condition. They don’t want to appear ignorant in front of their “all-knowing” doctor, and they don’t want to take up too much of this Important Person’s time, so they say little and ask almost nothing. Last of all, they often fail to understand a doctor’s orders. Studies show that many patients don’t understand why they should take a certain medication or for how long they should take it. It is incredible to know that people could be putting their health at risk because they do not speak up when visiting their doctor.

9 Main Idea and Supporting Details Interactive Open this link: main-idea-and-supporting-details-as- tutorial# 1. There are six videos on this page. You are only to view the following: “Main Idea: The Basics” “Song: The Main Idea” “Supporting Details: The Basics” 2. Answer the questions on the handout related to these videos. 3. Underneath the paragraph, write down 3 observations that you have about how it is written. Many people are strangely passive when they visit a doctor. First of all, they often fail to provide the doctor with complete information about their medical problem. They may barely describe their symptoms, believing that a skilled doctor—like a master car mechanic—will somehow easily be able to diagnose what is wrong with them.

14 Paragraph Organization What is the best order for these sentences? Share your organization of these sentences with your neighbor. (We will put them in order on the following slides.) Cut these 10 sentences into strips. Rearrange them so that they create a logical and coherent paragraph. 1. Such exposure can lead to aggression and violence. 2. Look closely into the eyes of a bully, and you might see that there is “more than meets the eye”. 3. Studies reveal several reasons why some children become bullies. 4.

Whether abused by family members or tormented by other kids, bullies typically learn their behavior from others. 6. Bigger, more aggressive children are more likely to try to dominate their smaller, quieter peers. 7. Another factor linked to bullying is overexposure to violent TV programs. 8. School bullies have been around as long as there have been schools. 9. Finally, exposure to real violence is a factor in bullying. 10. Research shows that a certain combination of size and personality may be one factor.

22 DO NOW: The paragraph below is missing a topic sentence. Read the paragraph and develop a topic sentence for it. The most important factor is a student's past experience of study. If a student has already developed good study habits, study at university should not be difficult. Good study habits need to be complemented by interest and motivation, factors which are important when competition gets tough. We should however not underestimate the distracting effects of financial and personal difficulties. All students have to grapple with these at some stage of their university life. Beyond the personal factors it has to be said that there is also a certain element of luck involved in success: this includes finding excellent teachers and the subject matter that inspires one to give one's best.

34 What’s Your “Hamburger”? Think about the analogy of the organization of an expository paragraph being just like a hamburger. (The topic and concluding sentences are the top and bottom buns, respectively, etc.) Based on what we have discussed and practiced in class, use the elements that make up a good essay to create/construct a model or representation of how an essay is organized. You may use any materials, tools, or objects that you can think of. Think outside of the burger box! The model that you create/construct should represent the following elements:  Introductory paragraph  Thesis statement  Body Paragraph: Topic Sentence Main Point Supporting Detail Concluding Sentence  Concluding Paragraph In addition to your model, you will be required to: Write a paragraph explaining how your model relates to the organization of an essay. (And yes, you should organize your paragraph appropriately!) This project will be a summative assessment, and you will be asked to share your model with the class. NINE WEEKS PROJECT
