Writing to a Prompt

Write a multi-paragraph informational response describing how technology is changing the lives of children today.  Your response must be based on ideas and information that can be found in both passages New Technology Makes Fake Arms Cheaper and More Useful for Children and Dream Jobs: Roboticist.

Manage your time carefully so that you can:
  • review the passages;
  • plan your response;
  • write your response; and
  • revise your response.

Be sure to:
  • include an introduction;
  • use evidence from the passages to support your explanation;
  • avoid overly relying on one passage; and
  • include a conclusion.

Here is Bryce's Introduction. He starts with an excellent topic sentence and has the main idea from each article.

Teamwork Informational Report

Steps for writing an informational report

1. Make a plan for the process. Think about the topic and what main points will be stressed.
2. Conduct research and take notes. Use a range of resources — from essays, articles, videos, and the Internet to do this. Take notes without copying word-for-word to reduce the risk of plagiarism. Be sure to copy websites and titles of articles so you can cite your sources.
3. Organize your paper using an outline. Decide which research and information fits best and where it should go in the essay.
4. Write the first draft of the report. Use the outline as a road map.
5. Edit and reread the report. Checking and correcting mistakes are the hallmarks of a good student.
