What we did in class, today – Using the life cycle of a frog outline, I showed students how to develop their outlines so that they would end up with an informative, 500-word prescriptive essay. Next, I showed a diagram from Live Science that illustrates how the circulatory system operates. Students, then, referred to the outline they had written for their descriptive process essay last week to write the rough draft of their essay. If necessary, they revised their outlines before beginning their rough drafts.
