Slide 21 - The Climb (pronoun exercise)
- Remember to download this passage from the Activities section.
- We had prepared us for months for the climb. Many of the team members theirselves practiced every day by bouldering. Whenever possible, we all practiced our moves on large boulders. However those boulders were only several feet off the ground. This was going to be different. Our trainer told us, “You must increase your strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance to succeed, but you also need to prepare you mentally for the climb.” He was quite an experienced climber hisself. We always used ropes to protect us from falling. We used nuts, screws, and other tools to support us. Then the big day came. We started climbing a real cliff. It was difficult, but it was worth the effort. We congratulated us when we reached the top. We knew that we ourselves had what it took to be rock climbers.
Slide 22 - The Title
- How do I develop an appropriate title for my essay?
Slide 23 - Most often, titles are written at the end of the writing process, so the first step in creating a great title is to write your essay.
- Write your essay
Slide 24 - Of course, you thought about your intended audience before and while writing your essay, but think about who will be reading your work again when choosing a title. Think about what is most likely to appeal to them: content? humor?
- Consider your audience
Slide 25 - If a good title doesn’t suddenly come to mind, write down your topic and key words from your essay. These words reflect the main concept or ideas of the whole essay. Join these words together in a sentence, or sentences. Convert these sentences into shorter phrases.
- What is your theme?
- Re-read your essay
Slide 26 - Occasionally, a title will pop into your mind fully formed, but most often, titles need to be written, expanded, and edited several times. Make the title as informative as possible, even if it seems long or wordy. Don’t hold back—reveal your conclusions. Be direct and enthusiastic.
- Re-work your title
