This evening we covered his workbook lessons in the present perfect and present perfect progressive as well as his weekly essay assignment. For the last half hour or so we started working on outlining his next weekly essay assignment and trying to think of strategies for brainstorming background information for main ideas in essays. He scored a 95 on the essay that we went over last week and shows improvement with his writing skills. He has decided finding alternate vocabulary is something he wants to work on.

We covered topic sentences, main ideas, and strategies for supporting details, including descriptions. The students struggled most with determining different strategies for different purposes. We will continue to work on this next session. The students' attitudes were responsive and thoughtful, and they did well on the activity and our discussion. The study strategies included employing controlling ideas and judgments to topics through cause-and-effect-thinking, and asking questions about topics that interest them. They are to write at least one entry in their writer's notebooks, and read the memoir "The First Morning" by Edward Abbey. The students have a hard time with extrapolating their thoughts on different topics (whether something dangerous can be considered beautiful, etc.). We will go over this next session. Both students have a decent understanding of the function of topic sentences, and both of them understand the need for supporting details for arguments.

We covered writing a thesis sentence and how to incorporate it into a paragraph. The student was struggling with being specific and making their argument explicitly clear. We edited 2 previous writing assignments and did a new one together in order to practice the more specific structure. The student was appreciative of the specific and tangible examples we used. We made goals throughout the session including: using more academic vocabulary especially in transitions as well as making the thesis or argument SUPER clear to the reader. We chose 2 transition phrases for the student to work on using in her writing before the next session as well as a story to read/listen to that will be the basis of our practice on argumentative writing next time.
