Pre-Teach Day 1 (Argument Character) Claim

What is a claim?

Examples from the story Everything Will Be OK

* Pass out a list of Character Traits or create a list
*Discuss how some character traits are "universal" and then others are help describe the "universal" trait.

                                                              Leader (universal)
                             Hardworking, Determined, and Well Spoken (helper traits)

**Remember your claim MUST include:
  • Title of Text 
  • Author
  • Claim

Practice: With a partner from your literature group, create a claim for a prior story you have read.  Your ticket out the door is your claim on an index card.
