I can write using the process of inquiry.
Today was divided into two parts. We reviewed the "create" step in the process of inquiry during the first period. We worked on our research during the second period.
Part 1: Create: Writing Titles and Topic Sentences
The purpose of our Olympic Books (see my example here) is to inform. Since the purpose is to inform, we don't need to use any pathos, and we don't need to convince out reader of anything. We just want to write the information that we have learned.
The first thing your reader reads on each page is the title and the first sentence of your paragraph. We want to both to be interesting and effective.
Topic Sentences Should:
To practice this we read the following information (research) about Michael Phelps. Then we brainstormed possible titles and topic sentences for each of the four questions on the research page.
Look at the Michael Phelps research. Notice that there are four questions and answers to each of the four questions. Choose one question and read the information that answers the question. Next, brainstorm a list of three possible titles for a Olympic Book page about that question. Finally SumParQuo (Summarize, paraphrase, or quote) the information to create a topic sentence.
Part 2- Research
Remember the steps of inquiry? If you are on the "create" step of the process, then use the rubric and instructions below to help you create your Olympic Book.
