Day 26: Integrating PIE and Cohesion into a Decision Case-Based Essay

Class Today:
1. Review Outlining
  • In groups of 3, discuss was hardest about writing an outline. We will discuss your answers after 5 minutes.
2. PIE
Now we have an outline! But to develop the paragraphs we need PIE.
  • Get in pairs, one student will be student A and the other one will be student B. Read the paragraphs to your partner. Ask your partner if the phrase is a P, I, or E. If your partner does not know the answer, you can help. Do not show the answers!
  • Next,  download this paragraph and highlight it according to instructions. Do this with your partner.
3. Cohesion
Now you know how to develop your paragraph, but how can you make sure it makes sense?
  • In groups, brainstorm words you have used to make your writing easier to understand.
  • Then in groups of 3, do this cohesion worksheet together.

4. Putting it all together
Working on integrating PIE and cohesion into your first body paragraph from your outline.
  • If we have time, we will do a mini peer review.
