Topic: Body Paragraphs - Unit 1 Essay
Objective: After this class you will be able to use your essay outline to expand and complete a body paragraph with a premise, textual evidence (paraphrased and quoted), and a warrant.

EXPECTATIONS ON YOUR DESK

1. Place proper materials on your desk  1. Your English binder

2. Fill in MLA heading 2. Two sharpened writing utensils

3. Sit at SLANT 3. This Packet

4. Silently and immediately begin the “Do Now”

Do Now

1. Paraphrasing is putting a piece of text into your own words. Paraphrase the following quote:

“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.” - Sam Ewing




Paraphrased:




2. Quotes need context of where or when they were said and who said them before the quote is inserted. Try giving the background then inserting the following quote:
“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” –Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence


Context + Quote:

I Do

We have just been exposed to inserting evidence into our essays. Evidence is the meat of a body paragraph. Let’s see how we can add the rest of the sandwich to make a yummy Body Paragraph.



Outline I’ve already created:

Premise - One way in which the claim is true (main pt. you will prove in that body paragraph)



Both religions tout good over evil

Evidence - Paraphrase OR directly quote 2 facts that support the premise



1. “So mankind’s enemy / Continues his crimes, Killing as often as he could, coming /Alone bloodthirsty and horrible. Though he lived / In Herot, when the night hid him, he never / Dared to touch king Hrothgar’s throne, /Protected by God” (line 80-85).

2. “Now he discovered—once the afflictor / Of men, tormentor of their days—what it meant / To feud with Almighty God” (line 383-85)
