2 Today’s Standard 2.2 Analyze text that uses proposition and support patterns. proposition support

3 Proposition= an opinion put forth by someone. Support= a reason that answers the question why about the proposition statement. Example: Proposition: Public schools should have a school uniform policy Support: Safer campus because intruders can easily be identified Support: School uniforms emphasize group identity, which promotes school pride. Support: Wearing school uniforms prevent the creation of clothing related cliques. WHY?

4 Examples of Support:  Facts, including the results of scientific research and surveys.  Studies from Long Beach, CA. have shown that the number of suspensions had decreased since the mandatory school uniform policy took effect  Statistics– facts in number form.  In 21 states and the District of Columbia, schools and districts have the right to tell students what to wear  Examples– specific instances that illustrate reasons or facts.  When the whole school has to wear the same thing, no one can be picked on

5 Examples of Support:  Anecdotes– brief stories, such as personal experiences  8 year old Carina likes that her principal wears the same uniform as the students  Definitions-the formal statement of the meaning  At the Cramp School, the uniform consists of white shirts, red ties, and navy blue bottoms  Opinions from Experts on the subject, especially with direct quotations.  Principal Karen Williams said, “We’re not here to parade outfits around. We’re here with our shirts tucked in, ready for the day.”

6 YOUR TURN! California is considering eliminating all non- academic subjects (art, music, P.E. etc.) from middle schools to put more emphasis on math, English, history and science. State a proposition on this subject and give 3 sentences of support. Tell what kind of evidence you have used as support ( fact, example, statistics, quote, expert opinion, personal experience, or anecdote ).
