Below you find rewrite opportunites for my class.  Please follow the instructions carefully and keep ALL of the original papers.  I will NOT grade a rewrite if I do not have the original copy/rubric/additional materials.  Additionally, rewrites should be handed back in a timely manner.  This means about one week after I hand the assignment back to you.  This way it will be fresh in your mind.  If you do need more time than that, please come speak with me about extra help before school or during 6th period study hall.

 

 

 

Terezin Art and Poetry Assessment:

Please make all corrections in the original Googledoc that you created in class.  All rewrites will be graded through Googledocs.  Additionally, please bring back the original art work, poem, and highlighted copy.  

 

 

 

Persuasive Elements Assessment:

In class, I will give you the correct answers.  If you are not here on that day, please come see me, or use process of elimination and figure out the correct answer.  Once you have the correct answer, write two to five ORIGINAL sentences using the proper persuasive technique and then explain how it is used.

 

For example:  It is so much easier to look away from victims.  It is so much easier to avoid such rude interruptions to our work, our dreams, our hopes.  

 

This sample shows parallelism/repetition because of the same grammatical structure with the word our.  OUR work, OUR dreams, OUR hope.  Because of the use of parallelism/repetetion, it adds impact to his words by emphasizing his point that it is much easier for people to look away from the victims than to help them.

 

 

 

Wordsmith/Vocab Assessments:

In class, I will give you the correct answers.  If you are not here on that day, please come see me, or use process of elimination and figure out the correct answer.  Once you have the correct answer, write TWO original sentences using that word and context clues.

 

For example:  The torrid temperatures throughout July and August dried up rivers and destroyed crops.

 

If torrid was my vocabulary word, this sentence words perfectly because I use context clues in it.  July and August are generally warm, so this helps to understand that torrid means hot and/or dry.  Additionally, it dried up rivers and destroyed crops.  Once again, heat would dry something up and destroy crops.

 

 

 

 

 

Survival Guide:

Look over the rubric and the original copy that I handed back.  Make any changes to your survival guide ONLINE in the Googledoc.  You do NOT need to reprint this paper.  I will grade the corrections online.  Please bring in the orignal paper and the rubric when you have completed your rewrite online/
