In TWO well developed paragraphs, answer the following 2 questions using the Answer / Explain / Support /Comment Method.


Question Description

You are to use 2 forms of support for each question. Diversify your references (support). Whatever 2 sources you choose as support in question #1 CAN NOT BE USED IN question #2. This make sit a total of 4 sources!!!

One paragraph PER question (Yes. The paragraphs will be long. Don't worry. I wont tell your English teacher):

1. Why is there a danger of the single story in the construction of America?

2. How does a balanced, comparable history advocate for social justice?

YOU get an A when you begin your paragraph with a strong attention grabber that is appropriate for the reader. However, make sure you are actually address the question. If you veer away from the question, it will affect your overall clarity and result in a low scoring essay.

YOU get an A when your ANSWER statement provides a clear, strong statement of your position/argument on the topic being assessed. This is your ARGUMENT YOU get an A when your explanation provides the important information that further explains the answer statement. The explanation draws from the UNIT and focusses on HOW the answer statement makes sense. It is cohesive and relevant to the unit.

--Then you transition onto the EXPLANATION. This takes about 3-5 sentences. This is your LOGIC.

YOU get an A when your support substantiates your explanation. The support takes content from an author or video and integrates the support into your paragraph in a cohesive form. Introduce the referenced author/video by providing a brief synopsis of the author/video’s purpose, yet connect it to the answer statement being asked in the first place.

--Lead into your SUPPORT.

YOU get an A when the selected required references/support are actually supporting your argument and align with your explanation. The selected support is specific and demonstrates how the author/video supports YOUR position. This is your EVIDENCE. Whatever 2 sources you choose as support in question #1 CAN NOT BE USED IN question #2. Therefore, you will have a total of 4 different sources. Be strategic!

--But never leave your support alone. You need to COMMENT on each support.

YOU get an A when your COMMENT examines the argument presented by the support in relation to your LOGIC. Evaluate causes and reasons of the author’s argument in relation to your LOGIC. Examine effects and consequences of the author’s argument to your LOGIC. How does the support you used connect with your LOGIC? What does the support you used mean in relation to your logic? Remember, you are to comment on BOTH sources used. This is your VALUE statement.

Make sure you “bookend” your paragraph. Ensure your attention grabber AND your closing sentence frame your overall paragraph.
