Using Specific Examples – Notebook Check

18 May

Today we will pay attention to the skill: using specific examples.

Use Specific Examples:  Go beyond simply describing and discuss actual things that happened. Don’t just say that Henry is mean, tell us things that happened.  EX:  Henry pushed his brother down the stairs and stole his candy.  He then ripped up his brother’s comic books and yelled at the dog.

Notebook work:  As an exercise give specific examples from your high school experience for these statements:

  • High school is horrible
  • High school is fun
  • High school is different than middle school
  • High school is stressful
  • There are many fun activities to participate in

Notebook Check

Today I will check your notebook for notes on our short stories, and for seniors, I will also check your quick writes about high school.
