Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, I'd like to you to do the following:
1. Create a new Google Document.
Name it: Prompt Thinking.
Share it: Mr. Moore (can comment, no email)
2. Begin to edit the document by answering as many of the following questions as you can - using big, fat, juicy paragraphs with explanations and examples of your thinking.
A. When you write to a prompt, what are the strategies you use to score at the highest levels?
B. Explain the skills your writing should demonstrate to score a "4" or advanced in each area of the rubric.
C. How can the rubric help you as a writer?
D. What are the skills you feel confident in using from the rubric?
E. What are the skills you don't understand from the rubric?
F. If you had to make a checklist of things to remember when you respond to a prompt, what would you include?
G. If you were teaching students to respond to a prompt, what would you say are the most important things to teach them?
Thanks in advance for pushing your thinking! This assignment is due today. Do not waste your time. I'll be checking it from home tonight. :)
~ Mr. Moore
