1 Practicing Passage-Based On-Demand Writing Jean Wolph Louisville Writing Project

2 AGENDA How do we read an on-demand prompt? How do we read a passage in order to USE our writing? How do we write from our notes?

3 Start with B! Writing Part B Writing situation: Your class is studying healthy eating. You’ve learned about ways that the government and medical workers are encouraging us to cut down on sugary beverages. Your class will soon have a parent night to share what you’ve learned. You have read the articles about sugary drinks and you’ve marked facts and quotes that explain the problem of having too much sugar. Writing directions: Write a speech telling parents the most important things they need to know about choosing the best beverages for their families. Why are sugary drinks bad for us? Use information from the articles to explain.

To explain how to make good beverage choices and why sugar drinks are bad for us HOW are we writing? Using facts and quotes Explaining clearly and correctly

7 The Passages Too Much Sugar in Beverages adapted from Should sugary drinks be taxed? Why do we notice titles and authors? Writers tell their readers WHERE the information came from!

8 Reading for a PURPOSE What are we looking for? FACTS about sugary drinks and why they are bad for us QUOTES from experts who can help parents understand how or why to make good beverage choices for their families

9 Coding the Text Underline FACTS that show why sugary drinks are bad for us (don’t underline EVERY word, just phrases) Circle QUOTES we want to use (just 1-2) that will show parents why sugary drinks are bad for us

10 Try it: Too Much Sugar in Beverages Compiling this list surprised us – the most sugar filled drinks are not what you think they are. In a number of drinks the level of sugar is huge. No wonder soft drinks play such a big role in obesity. The average American consumes around 150 pounds of refined sugars a year. Some drinks and juices have as much sugar as several Snickers candy bars. Sugary beverages contribute to the Type 2 diabetes crisis in our country.

12 Too Much Sugar in Beverages What facts could we pull from this chart? Which drinks do our families sometimes buy?

13 Too Much Sugar in Beverages Sunkist Orange Soda has 69 grams of sugar in a 16 ounce bottle. Mellow Yello has 63. Energy drinks are in between with 66 grams.

14 Too Much Sugar in Beverages: Partners A recent study at Maquarie University showed that sugar and caffeine when combined and fed to rats produced lasting changes to brain chemistry. Researchers from the University of California in San Francisco found that those who drink just 20 fl. oz. of sugary soda a day may take as much as 4 years off of their lifespan. Why is so much sugar placed in drinks? Caffeine is bitter. Most people add sugar to caffeinated beverages (like coffee or tea) to make them drinkable. Energy Drinks contain caffeine. They also contain lots of sugar. A typical 16 fl. oz. energy drink contains around grams of sugar. This is about teaspoons of sugar.

16 Should sugary drinks be taxed? On your own! Sweetened beverages are the biggest source of added sugars in the American diet. The American Heart Association tells us to have no more than 6 teaspoons or 24 grams (women) or 9 teaspoons or 36 grams (men) of refined sugars each day. Since many are having 4 times that amount, they risk health problems that come from consuming too much sugar in drinks and other foods. Too much refined sugar in the diet is linked to many health problems. High intakes of sugar can lead to obesity, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and other health problems such as tooth decay. “This is the first generation of children who won’t live as long as their parents,” Dr. Rachel Johnson told Time for Kids. She is a spokesperson for the American Heart Association.
