The students were certainly charged up with energy after last night’s election results. Thus, I took the opportunity to capitalize on that excitement with the essay topic they started in class today. Before we tackled that, the students had 10 minutes to work on their “Create-A-Quiz” assignment in their groups. We then moved into a review of the writing process‘ five parts: pre-writing, drafting (rough draft), revising, editing, and publishing (the final product). Finally, the students began brainstorming on the topic below. They will complete the in-class 5-paragraph essay tomorrow for a test grade.
Each of you possess some of the qualities for a successful President of the United States. Regardless of whether or not you were born here, write an essay persuading the adults of the United States to vote for you for President. Be sure to explain at least three qualities you possess that would make you strong at the job.
