ENG 2P: Critical Writing Response

This overview should help you prepare for tomorrow’s Critical Writing Response:

  • You will choose to answer 1 or 2 questions.
  • Your response should have 3-4 paragraphs
  • Each paragraph should begin with a clear topic sentence
  • Make sure you provide 2 examples in each paragraph. Explain your examples fully; imagine that the reader doesn’t know anything about the example you are using.

The notes created by students during today’s review are here:

Video games and education

  • there is a large amount of games that you can learn from
  • games bring out your imagination and make you think
  • minecraft is a game that is endless, and can be used in so many ways (geography or electrical circuits|)
  • games also keep student engaged
  • REMEMBER TO PROVIDE SPECIFIC AND DETAILED EXAMPLES

Racism

  • makes people feel unwanted
  • perhaps makes people dislike who they are
  • at the school level, bullying based on race can lead to depression, fear of going to school, and self-hate
  • REMEMBER TO PROVIDE SPECIFIC AND DETAILED EXAMPLES

When jokes go too far

  • your relationship to the “joker” matters (jokes are different coming from friends)
  • jokes can make people feel insecure about who they are
  • sometimes, it is harder to know if people are joking on social media
  • REMEMBER TO PROVIDE SPECIFIC AND DETAILED EXAMPLES
