Good day, students! Today we will be honing some of our essay writing skills by comparing and contrasting. You will be using a Venn Diagram like the one pictured, or you may use a variation of that, like three columns or boxes instead of circles. Your assignment:
- In your Composition Book, make a Venn Diagram comparing two of the Characters from the book Hoot. You may choose from Roy Eberhardt, Beatrice Leep, Mullet Fingers, Dana Matherson, Officer Delinko, and Curly.
- Next, you will plan your writing using the official JFK Middle Planning Sheet which is under the “Essay Writing” tab above.
- Finally, you will compose your five paragraph essay. Remember to have an introduction, three reason paragraphs, and a conclusion.
- Your essay should include FIRE – Facts, Incidents, Reasons, and Examples.
