Love this idea :) -- "The incredible shrinking notes" Students start out writing a summary of their reading on the large index card. They are then given a medium sized card and have to take the info from the large card and condense it. By the time students get to the small index card they're getting to the main point/idea of the reading selection.
After teaching & practicing writing with students, I have them write a paragraph on their own. On the day I return the graded paragraph, they all get to make a sub with only the parts of the paragraph they have in their graded work....no conclusion, no bottom bun :-) only one supporting sentence, only one condiment. It is a ton of fun to watch the kids make and eat their subs.
Expository Writing Introduction ￼By the time students enter high school, they have learned about many moments in history that have influenced our world today. Think about a moment in history you studied and consider its importance. Write a composition in which you discuss a moment in history. Share its importance in today’s world. Be sure to support the moment with details and examples.
