Long Answer Reponses

The topic will be something you are familiar with (relevant to teenagers).
-You must present a clear opinion or position
-You must present proof/examples/support for your opinion
-You will also be evaluated for spelling, grammar, punctuation, organization of your ideas, and sentence structure
-You must write a minimum 1 ½ pages.

 Your Strategy...
    •Follow the 5 paragraph structure
        1.Introduction paragraph
        2.First argument
        3.Second argument
        4.Third argument
        5.Concluding Paragraph

Like short answer, pick a side to argue
    -Choose 3 reasons why you support that argument
    -Create 3 pieces of proof to put in each body paragraph
    -When in doubt, make it up!
        -Ex. 83% of students feel that Bella should have married Jacob
        (OBVIOUSLY YOU WOULD NOT WANT TO DO THIS FOR A CLASS ESSAY, BUT FOR THE OSSLT IT'S OKAY!)

Introductory Paragraph (1)
    -You need to clearly state your opinion and reveal 3 points that you plan on using to support it

Body Paragraphs (2,3,4)
    -Remember the pattern for short answer? We will use the same pattern for each body paragraph:
        -Topic Sentence
        -Support/Proof/Evidence
        -Concluding Sentence

Concluding Paragraph (5)
        -Restate what you said in your introductory paragraph including the 3 points that you argued
