1. 2. 3. 4. Access ALL of your sources. You can print them if that will be easier. With each on a separate index card, write out your research question, your thesis (if you have one yet), claims found in your research and individual pieces of evidence. Code each entry by color, symbol, letter, number or name. It doesnt matter how, just make sure you can keep them straight On the top of the card write your source code and the lens/perspective of the claim/evidence Source Lens Perspective Evidence

or claim Outlining Example Read through the 2017 high score example A Call for Nightshift Regulation on www.didwedoanythinginenglish.wordp ress.com As you read, create an outline with Section headings Subheadings Claims Evidence

Follow this model: Section title/heading = Roman # Sub-heading = Capital letter Claim w/in a subhead = lower case letter Evidence backing up claim = Arabic # Hmm, said a small voice in his ear. Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. Theres talent, oh my goodness, yes and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now thats interesting. . . . So where shall I put you? -J.K. Rowling, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone Group Your Evidence Lay your evidence/claim cards out in front of you and begin grouping your cards into piles. Group by Evidence/claims from the same lens

OR Evidence/claims from similar perspectives (organizations with similar motives or beliefs, people with similar jobs, scientific studies with similar data or conclusions, etc.) OR Evidence/claims that deal with similar subtopics of your overall topic Once you have your groups take a post-it note and title each pile. Hmm, said a small voice in his ear. Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. Theres talent, oh my goodness, yes and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now thats interesting. . . . So where shall I put you? -J.K. Rowling, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone Group Your Evidence

Now, think about how you want to organize your essay. Remember the ideas from Kate Turabians book Students Guide to Writing College Papers: Chronological Moving from your thesis/main idea to the conclusion with evidence/claims that happen one after another (or in reverse-chronological order) Part by Part Your conclusion is based on analyzing a topic by its different parts, then order them by their relationship to one another Step-by-Step Understanding Your main idea conclusion requires that your reader come with you as you explain events, principles, definitions or ideas to them before you can piece it all together at the end Most Acceptable to Most Contestable If your main idea is an argument that may ask your reader to change their mind about something, then your logical journey needs to carry them along. Start with what we

all can get behind and gradually add arguments that lead them further away from their thinking and towards your conclusion. Example: Americans shudder at the idea of eating dogs Pigs are more intelligent than dogs We should really be eating dogs instead of pigs Hot dogs would literally be hot dog. Hmm, said a small voice in his ear. Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. Theres talent, oh my goodness, yes and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now thats interestingSo where shall I put you? -J.K. Rowling, from Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone Short to Long, Simple to Complex Most readers prefer to deal with simpler issues before they work through more complex

ones Group Your Evidence Now, re-sort your piles based on your outline style. Keep in mind: Each pile should have a mix of lenses and perspectives Evidence that argues against your other evidence (or your thesis) is encouraged Use other notecards, post-its and paper clips to label headings and subheadings for your essay outline For HW: Create a Google Doc outline for your paper, with your notecards transcribed into your outline. Use the letter/number codes from yesterdays class. Email a link to Mr. Shulkin.

So where shall I put you? -Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by JK Rowling Blackboard Activity Use Post-It notes for credibility and reliability. Now that you have grouped the evidence, tape your pieces under reasons or sub- headings. Lets talk sub-headings.

Multiple colors? If not, you are not synthesizing. Credibility and Relevancy You should say Something about all your evidence. You should only mention the credibility the first time you introduce the source. According to Jim Haskins, lead professor at Georgia Tech School of Robotics and Engineering for 15 years, household robots will play an integral role in 80% of homes by the year 2050. Argument Reflection Activity The poster owner will begin the protected 3 minutes by

discussing his/her compelling questions, research, sources, stimulus, major claims, etc. On a blank sheet of paper, group members will record any thoughts regarding stimulus, perspectives, lenses, sources, insights, counter-claims, connections, limitations, solutions and/or questions relating to North's topic/research. At the end of 3 minutes, the group will then be allowed 2 minutes of whole-group discussion related to owners topic. During this time, members are encouraged to dialogue, develop, and diversify poster owners ability to attack the research problem. Thursday March 23 Lets take a look at the exemplars from last year. Identify where the author has

contextualized the issue. Identify where the author framed the issue. Identify any background information. Is the research question included? Identify the thesis statement. Thursday March 23 Writing an Contextualize Introduction the issue- Why are you research this issue? Frame the argument. Why is this issue relevant? Why should or does it matter? Provide the reader background information. Assume the readers know nothing about the issue. Acknowledge the complexity of the issue. Add the research question in the introduction:

This begs the question__________________. Why is it than that ______________________. Homework Type your introduction. Think about ALL your evidence. Consider your own understanding of the issue and your developing conclusions. Type (either in sentences or bullets) your conclusion, resolution, or solution. Bring to class both your introduction and your conclusion points tomorrow. Friday March 18 Blackboard Intentional Line ofActivity Reasoning Today you will tape/glue your

Introduction and Conclusion to your Blackboard. You will organize your evidence in each of the sections to make the most LOGICAL sense in terms of your conclusion. You will also move the sections (paragraphs) in to a LOGICAL order to lead the reader to your conclusion. Monday March 21, 2016 You will need an Electronic Copy of your Research Outline. Now you will fill in the gaps! Your COMMENTARY will now explain the relevance of your evidence and how it leads to your CONCLUSION, RESOLUTION, OR SOLUTION.

You must use the Synthesis Template! To prove you have used it, underline the phrasing you incorporated. Review the Template Handout. Choose 10-15 VERBs and use them in CORRECT context. Circle these words! Commentary Goals: The argument is logically organized WellReasoned, and Complex. The argument presents conclusion, resolutions, and/or solutions that are unambiguously linked to the evidence and fully addresses the research question. The essay clearly and convincingly links claims and evidence and includes insights drawn from the connection between them.
