Revision of outlines and writing the rough draft of descriptive process essay

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.

Link to YouTube video for what we did today – The link for today’s video can be found in MyGUST for the Week of Feb. 19-25.

Homework – Before midnight on Feb. 15, complete the Activities for any two Achieve3000 articles (other than “Helping a Classmate Learn”) of your choice.

What we will do in class on Wednesday, Feb. 22 – Students will continue working on their descriptive process essay rough drafts (Activity 19 on p. 99) and then complete Activity 20 (p. 99). They will also work on an assigned Achieve3000 reading to prepare for the midterm exam.
