Circle the Verbs. Underline the Nouns

ML-

  • 88% of students were able to identify anecdotes in a This I Believe Essay.
  • 96% of students were able to identify the Main Idea in a This I Believe Essay
  • 63% of students were able to interpret the meaning of a This I Believe Essay.
  • 50% of students were able to write 3-5 sentences in their interpretation.
  • 25% of students were able to accurately identify the context in a This I Believe Essay.

Focusing On Context- Simplified definition- 

Context- Anything in a This I Believe Essay that IS NOT the main idea, an anecdote, or a conclusion.

  • So this means if you are underlining the Context in a This I Believe Essay, there should be A LOT of underlining. 

Model-

  • Where is the context?
