This is your first project assignment. Your task is to take what you have learned about PIE paragraphs, formal writing and incorporating sources into writing and develop a strong paragraph.
Your paragraph should have:
- A clear point that is an opinion, not a fact.
- Information that is a quote from “Brainology” that is properly introduced and cited according to our Incorporating Quotes Worksheet.
- Explanation: An analysis/explanation of the quote you selected as information. Explain to the reader how your information proves your point.
Once you have read “Brainology,” write a PIE paragraph that is a minimum of 300 words long and answers the following question:
What is one way that having a growth mindset helps students succeed?
Your Point should directly answer the question. Your Information should be a quote from the article that supports that answer, and your explanation should explain the why.
Submit your paragraph for grading. Be mindful of the clock. I will not accept any paragraphs past the 2 hour time limit.
Note, you will not be able to attach a file, so please make sure your writing is in the text box.
