1 Analogy for... 1

2  One sheet of notebook paper with a heading.  Title your paper: MY MUSIC PLAYLIST 2

3  Purpose: Make a music playlist  Audience: Yourself  Genre: Any genre 3

4  Make a list of every song you LOVE.  Now, choose your TOP TEN songs. Circle or highlight your TOP TEN. 4

5  Now, put your top ten songs playlist in a purposeful listening order. 5

6  Write the title of song #1 and explain why it is one of your favorites.  Consider your explanations; think about any special memories, experiences, or people you associate with the song.  Limit your explanation to 2 – 3 sentences.  REPEAT this step for each song in your playlist. 6

7  Think about why you put the songs in the order you did. Thinking about each song on the playlist, do you notice a theme? Is there a connecting thread or does your playlist seem random or unconnected? Explain.  Now, explain the order of your playlist. You were asked earlier to put your songs in a purposeful listening order, now explain why your ordered the songs the way you did.  Share your playlist with a friend and get feedback about your song choices and the playlist order. Would they change anything? 7

8  Repeat after me:  “I promise  Not to  Listen to any song  On my playlist  For the next 5 days.” 8

9  Are you still completely satisfied with your songs and how your ordered your playlist?  Remove two songs.  Add one new song.  After you’ve made these changes, does your playlist need to be reordered?  Share your playlist with a friend and get feedback? 9

10  Check song titles for possible capitalization or spelling errors.  Put song titles in quotation marks.  Give credit to artists and check capitalization and spelling. ◦ EXAMPLE: “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry  Create a title for your playlist and underline the title. 10

11  Share with a friend or small group the first 30 seconds of each song. 11

13 Writing is a journey – there is a beginning, a middle, and an end. It is very important not to skip or rush any step of the process. 13

14 1.Planning 2.Prewriting 3.Initial Drafting 4.Continued Drafting 5. Cooling Off 6. Revising 7. Editing 8.Publishing 14

15  Identify your purpose  Identify your topic  Identify your format ◦ Personal Letter ◦ Business Letter ◦ Narrative Essay ◦ Short Story ◦ Research Paper  Identify your audience 15

16 *Think of prewriting as:  A collection of ideas  Looking for inspiration  Get the writing juices flowing  Narrowing your topic  Thinking about and writing down ideas  Ideas about writing can come from anywhere and anything 16

17  At this step you are:  Beginning to write  Organizing ideas  Elaborating on your topic 17

18  At the continued drafting stage, you are making connections between paragraphs.  Develop clear, logical transitions from one idea to the next.  Add detail for your reader  Continue to develop ideas, always with your reader in mind. 18

19  Step away from your writing piece for at least several days  When you come back to your writing, you will read your work as a “reader” not the “writer” 19

20  Revising / Rewriting / Changing  This is the longest part of the journey.  Now you are getting the words right  Making the meaning clear  Crafting better sentences  Adding detail and imagery where necessary 20

21  Editing / Checking / Correcting ◦ This is the technical step of the writing process:  Fix spelling errors  Fix punctuation errors  Let others read and make suggestions 21

22  You made it; you’re almost finished! ◦ Publishing: to have one’s written work made available for public view  You should ALWAYS conduct one final proofread before publishing your work.  My suggestion is to always read your work ALOUD before handing it in for grading.  You will catch “unseen” errors when you read your writing aloud – I promise it works! 22

23  Writing is a journey, a process  There are 8 steps in the writing process:  Planning: what, why, who  Prewriting: brainstorming ideas  Drafting: ideas taking form  Continued Drafting: connecting ideas, detail, transitions  Cooling Off: come back to writing with fresh eyes  Revising: checking for clarity, crafting better sentences  Editing: spelling, punctuation, feedback  Publishing: making your writing available to the public 23
