Day 9- PIE Structure

Today You Will Learn:
  • how to identify four essential parts to every body paragraph (P-I-E-C) 
  • how to examine sample paragraphs to identify any missing parts 
  • how to assess your own essays for their use of P-I-E structure and identify/revise weaknesses 

Class Today:
  • Announcement: We struggled with coherence so I will give you a nifty handout to use as a reference. Here is the online link.
  • Please put your name at the top of all documents. I will show you.
  • Warm-up: In google docs share what you do when you struggle to write enough ideas in your paragraphs. 
  • I will give you a handout. While you work on the handout, I will show you this powerpoint presentation. The answers are here
  • With the rest of class time, please modify your body paragraphs to include PIE structure. I will walk around helping you.
