COMPLETE SENTENCES How to write a strong and complete sentence.
Complete Sentences that Reflect the Question or CSRQ • CSRQ is required when answering all questions. • CSRQ is easier than re-writing and then answering the question
Methods • First remove the question word. • Who, What, When, Where, Why, How • Use what is left of the question and combine with your answer. • This will form a complete sentence and reflect the question without rewriting the whole thing.
Examples • What is your name? My name is Mrs. Rickert. • Who wrote “Thank You, Mr. Jones”? Sarah Logan wrote “Thank You, Mr. Jones.”
Things to remember • Include everything out of the original question. • If there is a quote, use the quote. • If there is a name, use the name! • Use EVERYTHING!
Examples • The length of the question doesn’t matter. It is always set up the same way. • For example--- • Question: “Do you think Ackerman’s scientific knowledge about leaves comes from observation or research? Explain. • Answer: I think Ackerman’s scientific knowledge about leaves comes from research because she uses sophisticated explanations and terminology.
Inverted word order • It is acceptable to use inverted word order in CSRQ if it still makes sense! • Question: What are three things people do with fall leaves? • Answer: Play in leaves, protect plants and recycle to create humus are three things people do with fall leaves.
Remember • You do NOT write the question. • Remove the question word. • You reflect the question in your answer. • I will recognize the question immediately, if you have done it correctly. • Include everything from the question in your answer!
More Examples… • Question: Who wrote the book entitled White Fang? • Answer: Jack London wrote the book entitled White Fang. • Question: As a child, what does Brooks assume about the “wasp house”? • Answer: As a child, Brooks assumed that the “wasp house” was made by humans, just as a birdhouse is.
Don’t Forget!!!!! • Always capitalize the first word in every sentence! • Always end your sentences with some form of punctuation, such as a period! • If a word has an apostrophe, make sure you use it!
