Assignment #1: Due Wednesday, 11 January 2012

Questions on Main Ideas in Writing

Standard: WS1.1 – Establish a controlling impression or coherent thesis that conveys a clear and distinctive perspective on the subject and maintain a consistent tone and focus throughout the piece of writing.

ESLR: Resourceful Learner – Take responsibility for learning

Rationale

On the CAHSEE you will be asked:

. . . if a sentence supports a main idea.

. . . to identify a sentence that does not fit into an essay.

So remember:

. . . that each sentence in an essay should focus on the essay’s main idea (thesis statement).

. . . that each sentence should fit into the essay. If it doesn’t, then it should be moved, revised, or removed.

Directions: While carefully reading the passages, look for the MAIN IDEA. Find the correct answer using the Main Idea/Detail and POE strategies. Record your answer and be sure to give support.

Garlic Bread Fever


My family really likes the garlic bread that I make. I learned the method from my grandmother. It’s really simple but if people like it, what does it matter? My grandmother grew up in a small coastal town in Sicily.

First, I grind up about five cloves of garlic. I know that sounds like a lot, but trust me, it’s the right amount. Meanwhile, I let the butter sit out and get soft. When I’m done grinding the garlic, I put it in a shallow bowl with half a stick of butter and use the back of a spoon to mash the garlic into the butter. This can take a little while, depending on the softness of the butter.

Next, I slice up a loaf of Italian bread lengthwise, as if I’m going to make a sandwich. I make sure not to slice all the way through; I keep it so the top and bottom are connected. Then I spread garlic butter on both sides (that’s very important), and close the loaf. Then I get it ready to go in the oven.

Which sentence is LEAST related to the main idea in the essay?



  1. “Then I spread garlic butter on both sides (that’s very important) and close the loaf.”

  2. “It’s really pretty simple but if people like it, what does it matter?”

  3. “My grandmother grew up in a small coastal town in Sicily.”

  4. “Next, I slice a loaf of Italian bread lengthwise, as if I’m going to make a sandwich.”

How to Answer: Figure out the main idea!

Main Idea: _____________________________________________

_____________________________________________

This question asks you which idea is LEAST related to the main idea. Using POE, determine which answers DO fit the main idea and CROSS THEM OUT. The one that is left over will be your answer.

Correct Answer: _______________



In your own words, explain how you knew this was the correct answer. _____________________________________________
