ENG 4U: Write away….

Today, you will work with your group to write introductions and an outline for an essay that you will NOT write. Here is how this will work:

  • We will check http://news.google.com/ for ideas
  • Do you remember our discussion of verbs last week? Let’s take a look at some strong, specific verbs. Please consult a dictionary AND a thesaurus to make sure that the verbs fit your goal:
  • http://www.owlnet.rice.edu/~cainproj/writingtips/preciseverbs.html
  • You will work together to produce a skeletal outline for this “essay.” Pages 126-127 of Guide to Literature, Language, and Media has a list of organizational patterns; you can also consult the handout I gave you last week
  • I’d like everyone in your group to choose a different approach to the introduction
