Review PowerWriting:

What is PowerWriting

PowerWriting: What You’ve Learned

Your goal is to apply the organization structure of PowerWriting to literature responses. Right now, literature responses are in the form of a paragraph …

or as we say in the Learning Lab, a PowerGraph.

As a team, you completed the Character Map posted below. (Thanks for your productive collaboration in your teams – impressive!)

Then you were asked to generate a 1,2,3,3,2,3,3,1 PowerGraph, using the information you gathered from team mates and the text.

Remember, the structure of PowerWriting serves as “hangers” for your ideas. Just like hangers in your closet and mine,…

we both have them, but what we choose to hang on them and how we chose to organize what we put on the hangers is your individual choice.
