Depending on the audience: Using readers to generate purposeful argumentative writing
Lesson Directions: Spend 7 minutes composing three brief notes about your weekend to the following readers
To my boss:
This weekend I spent working on my curriculum plans for next year. I looked at many of the resources on the college board AP site to download curriculum guide information. I also downloaded some curriculum guides, CCSS and Compass items for the schoolwiki.
To my boyfriend:
Let us not forget that “everyday that we go to work, we are interviewing for our jobs.” This weekend I downloaded stuff for the school wiki: curriculum guides, CCSS and Compass resources. I don’t want anyone to say that I am working toward the improvement of the school.
To my friend:
You know how I spent the weekennnnnd – working baby. A good teacher’s job is NEVER DONE. I looked up some stuff for our school website so that everyone can find and use it.
