Today you'll be writing to a prompt. Here it is:
What's the greatest thing you've ever read?
Before you jump in, think about these things:
1. You'll write your response in a Google Doc. Name it: "The Greatest Thing I've Ever Read" and share it with your teachers. Teachers don't need an email, and they can edit.
2. After you finish your first draft, your teacher will give you a direction about who you should share your work with.
3. Once you share, you'll be responsible for helping your classmates to revise and edit their work. You'll help them by adding comments to their draft. Each comment should have at least one specific compliment and one great question.
4. If you need help asking great questions, search your Google Documents for the resource Randy worked on and I shared. (Thanks for the great work Randy!) You should search your documents for "Higher Level Thinking Questions."
5. At the end of writing time tomorrow, you'll submit a link for your document, which you will post here on the blog as a comment.
6. Here are a couple of hints...
- It can be ANYTHING you've ever read.
- You need to to do a great job of proving your thinking. Any answer is correct if you've got great thinking to back it up!
- Multiple paragraphs would be awesome!
- Consider the writing rubric.
7. Thanks in advance for really pushing your thinking on this job. We can't wait to share it!
