EWRT 1A Week 1 Class 2

Agenda • Brainstorming Activity Continued • Introduce essay #1 • Outlining – Thesis – Topic Sentences – Counterargument

• Get into groups of three or four and discuss your choices. Explain your reasons for choosing your supplies to the other people in your group. It will behoove you to argue vigorously so you all understand the benefits of each item. When you have all settled on your final lists, make a list for yourself of what each person in your group is taking with him or her.

Write an essay arguing for the supplies you have chosen to take with you into the wild. Present the issue to readers, and develop an argument for the purpose of confirming, challenging, or changing your readers’ views on which supplies are the most important for survival. Your final essay should be around 500 words. You don’t need outside sources for this essay. Essay #1: The argument essay: an in-class writing exam

Introduction and Thesis • Focus your presentation of the issue: Your introduction should explain to the reader both the situation you face and why you have limited resources. • Thesis: Compose a thesis that makes your position unambiguous, appropriately qualified, and clearly arguable. (Your thesis will likely be near the end of your introduction). • Your working thesis might be similar to one of these: – “To survive in the wilderness, I will take __________________,” or – “For this trip, I plan to bring __________________________.”

Body Paragraphs • Paragraph one: topic sentence supporting your first item. – Give reasons for your choice and support them with examples, scenarios, or anecdotes. • Paragraph two: topic sentence supporting your second item. – Give reasons for your choice and support them with examples, scenarios, or anecdotes. • Additional Paragraphs: Repeat using the same or similar strategies

Counterargument: • Write a counterargument that addresses why you wouldn’t take the items the other people in your group think are very important. You should address specific tools others in your group chose to take. You may do this in each body paragraph as you argue for your choice, or you may do it as a separate paragraph after you finish arguing for your tools. • For example, you might start by writing, “while some people might prefer a sleeping bag, I found it to be a poor choice compared to the blanket.” Then you can explain why.

Conclusion: • If your adventure is over, describe how it ended and how you have recovered, suffered, or benefitted from it. OR • If the adventure is ongoing, consider predicting your future in the wild. – What are you chances of success? – What do you see as your biggest challenge? – How might you fail?

Homework • Read: HG through chapter 2 Post #3: Post your completed in-class writing
