Look through your journal and note invention, brainstorming, planning, reflecting, freewriting, or mapping techniques that you use with frequency.  Jot down examples and describe and reflect upon why/how these techniques work for you.  What do these techniques help you to do in your writing? How would you assess their impact on you as a writer? Which journal entry do you think best illustrates your strengths as a reader, thinker, and writer? Why?

Pair/Share & List of Journal Entries

Post your combined list to the class FB group.

3. Begin to prepare a one-page outline (you can use front and back of one page) for an essay based on tonight’s warmup in which you discuss and analyze how your writing process has developed over the course of this semester, making sure to note examples from your journal entries and drafts/prewriting & invention work you’ve done this semester to illustrate what strengths you’ve developed as a reader, thinker, and writer.

Things to keep in mind as your revise your essays

  • You need to include quotation/evidence sandwiches throughout your essay: cite quotes and examples from the texts and any other research/evidence in every supporting paragraph
  • Stop using second person!
  • Make sure to introduce the titles/authors of the works you are examining
  • Give your essay a title which previews the essay’s central idea or focus—a title that makes your reader want to read the essay
  • You need to work on your MLA Format!!!—this means giving credit to your sources through parenthetical citation throughout the text of the paper and including a works cited page at the end; please go here for a sample that shows exactly how to do MLA Format:
