The charts and templates in the slides would be super if students understand that they don't need to write an introduction before they get to the point of using the charts and templates.

Students don't understand that. I know I didn't understand that.

I had two masters' and several years' experience teaching college writing classes before I learned that an essay is not written in the order in which it is presented.

Since I cannot put something together from clear directions without knowing what I'm building, it was difficult for me to imagine teaching without showing the finished essay first.

Working as a newspaper reporter made me see that the thesis is the essay. That newspaper experience changed my entire way of teaching writing. Now I start with a working thesis, as this link explains:

Dear Mrs Aragoni;
Thank you for your interesting comment and I really appreciate your valuable link on teaching writing. I did show my students two finished essays therefore they know what they have to build up!

The things you showed us in the link were really helpful. I understood every single word of what they were explaining. We can read this so as to practice for the final exam and i really believe that it will really help us. It can also help people that at first didnt understand very well what a persuasive essay is. If they read what you have put i think that they will have a much better idea of what it is. I really like all of this persuasive essays and things because we have to write what we think about things and we have to write a lot and i love writing. I hope you put another comment like this one. I think it can and it will help many people. Thank you for posting it!!!
see you tomorrow!!!

Dear Miss Ale,
These was very usefull !! I think I will look at this again sometime I need it. Its practically what we have been looking at in school, well, some things no, but mostly it is. I loved to write the MY HERO essay, because you could express in a good way what you wanted to transmit to "the reader". I liked to do it because I loved to write about a person I consider my hero and that I think that was a good man and that helped society. In a way, he helped me, a lot, not personaly, but I mean my family and me. I am very glad to make this project about my hero !! Well, Im sure I will be looking at these post again, sometime later, maybe before the clean copy of our hero essay.
THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS MISS ALE ! IT IS A GRATE HELP FOR ME !!
SEE YOU

Miss Ale,
the page was incerdible!! I learned so much about how to organize essays, and how it is organized each tipe of essay (there are three tipes) Well I think it is great that you gives us this page because it would help us a lot in the final year test and whenever we have to write an SA. I will love to read this in class, so that the children that don´t see this in the blog see it and we all understand it better. But well, the point is that is great that you include this in the blog because we can enter and see it whenever we can or want. Thanks!! Oh I was going to forgot to say that the SA you showed us in class of 6A last year was great it, also that it had a great point because everybody that would read it would understand the meaning and importance of keeping school and society cleaner so we make the world less contaminated. I understand a lot of the work and i´m anxious to start working on our essays. Thanks for all the useful information.

See you and Thanks,

Dear Miss Ale: THIS INFORMATION WAS REALLY HELPFUL!!!!!
I think that this tools really help us a lot becasue you could get more information on how to do a persusive essay and how to do a good one, with different methods and ways of doing it. I was really pleased with this very special tool you´ve given me and of how much it help us on our organization, but at the same time I think that a very low, and calmed music while you are reading, will not do something harmful to this information, but it will do it better because it was kind of long( but at the same time interesting) and with music it will maybe be somthng that will do people pay more attention than what maybe somebody that doesn´t like reading very much, will do them pay more attention than what they may have payed, anyways, it was VERY VERY helpful and good and it had animations and like a mini mini example on what it was trying to transmit to you. Apart from the game I was so so impresed to see that Mrs. Aragoni had posted a comment, I have read it and I think that your blog is being very very useful to us and even to somebody you don´t know. Maybe she uses her(I think that if I understood corectley) to her students becasue it was helpful for her, so, GOOD FOR YOU!!!!
Well Miss ale, I will be at the blog maybe later to see if another person we don´t know has enter the blog and posted a comment...
MISS ALE THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!!
BYE BYE...
SEE YOU SOON...

I like very much writting essays because I think that is fun and also you can give your opinions on the third paragraph and you can tell what you think from your point of view and your beliefs. Also you can share your ideas so I find it very fun and at the same time interesting!
Entering to the link I learned that they are three tipes of persuasive writting. "Pro" means what is good and "con" means what is bad, as the same of benefits and drawbacks.
I ENJOY WRITTING ESSAYS!

Hi Miss Ale...
This post on persuassive essay is really useful because it can organize us when writing an essay and it tells what is an persuassive essay and really organizes us. It also talks about how to use diadvanteges and advanteges it aslo recomends to build up a persuassive essay by starting with the problem, then the solution and then the conclucion..... It also helped me to realize that it is something impotant to know because it is useful to convince people that you are right with what you are telling and it is a very interesting to know for the future and this post also worked to make any essay that I would have to do in the future....

bye bye!!!

Hello Ale this page on persuasive essay is long but it helps you. At the begining I didnt understand nothing but at the end I understood all of it. We already talked about this in class but this reminded me of all you spoke about. If you find games about persuasive essay you could put it so you play and at the sama time you learn more.

Helo Ale

The slides were very intresting because it gives you an idea of how to write, how to organise a persuasive essay, it was very clear the idea of the introduction and the arguments against and the pro and cons. The charts are very clear.
To coclude I would say although it was very long it really helps and the explanation when you put PLAY was very good.

it was very good because it helps you write and organize your essays. it also told you there where different types of essays such as the opinion essays, problem and solution essays and pro-con essays. it gives you an idea of how to write your essays, and how to use the different types of essays.

Hello miss Ale:

I saw the slide show and I think it is good because now I will be able to know better which is the most important things that I have to include in each of the paragraph and now also I will be able to write how and what I have to write in each pargraph. A drawback of this slide show is that I couldn´t anderstand how to use the a Supporting Reasons Table, Using an Objection Chart and Using a T-Chart.
