Presentation Transcript

  1. Superlative sentences • Eyes wide, mouth full, you’ll feel like you are in Italy. • On the hot platter from the oven, breadsticks are a wonderful addition to this meal. • When your guests smell this food, they will come running as fast as Usain Bolt on the track. • To ensure a great meal, the chicken is cooked to perfection. • As the scent goes through the air like a lit candle, you might feel like you are in Italy when you eat this meal.

  2. Summaries and critiques Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference between a summary and a critique. What do you think is the difference between a summary and a critique?

  3. summaries A summary does not… • misrepresent what you read. • use irrelevant or unnecessary details. • analyze what you read. • judge or evaluate what you read. A summary does… • restate what you read in your own words. • present on the main, or important details. • maintain a neutral and objective stance.

  4. critiques A critique does not… • restate what you read. • cover on the main points of what you read. • repeat unimportant or irrelevant details. • have an overly biased tone or style. • use slang or overly casual language. A critique does… • move beyond summary. • assess or analyze what you read. • offer interpretations and judgments about what you read. • give evidence to support your evaluation.

  5. Both should… • be written using the present tense (he remembers, she points out, the essay has). • include the title of the piece you’re writing about and the author’s name. • after the initial introduction of the author, you should refer to him or her by last name only. • be proofread before the final draft.

  6. Now it’s your turn… • You are either going to be writing a summary or a critique. • In your writing, be sure to use correct grammar. • You must also use at least three of the last six sentence starters we discussed last week to add sentence variety to your piece. • You have 15 minutes! • If you finish early, go back and proofread your writing and make any necessary corrections.

  7. Exit ticket • Read your shoulder partner’s writing. • Then, decide if the piece is a summary or a critique. • After deciding, explain why you believe the piece of writing is a summary or a critique. Cite evidence from their paper to prove your answer!
