Day 71 (11/15): Synthesis & Milestones Practice

Warm Up:
Take 5 minutes to look over your Synthesis Practice.  Be ready to:

  1. Summarize the Prompt & Your Argumentative Stance
  2. Give 2-3 reasons in support of your argument
  3. Summarize the main point of each source & discuss how it might be useful to your argument.

ELAGSE11-12W1 Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.
ELAGSE11-12W5 Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose and audience.
ELAGSE11-12W7 Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject
under investigation.
ELAGSE11-12W8 Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the strengths and limitations of each source in terms of the task, purpose,and audience; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and overreliance on any one source and following a standard format for citation.
ELAGSE11-12W9 Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

Essential Questions:
  1. How do I put together sources to help support my argument?
  2. How do I navigate the GA Milestones EOC Program
