Writing Task: Extreme Sports Unit


Happy Monday. Today we get serious about the writing task for this unit.  I have shared the assignment with you in your Google Drive (Find it in your G-mail or Shared With Me)

Draft Due Friday 5/16
Final Draft Due Monday 5/19
Call in by 5/20 (Your doc probably says 6/20, change that, sorry for the typo.)

Your writing task is based on one of the quotes that have been posted around the room. Choose one of the quotes and:

  • Explain the quote or author’s claim or argument.
  • Explain how the quote relates to the subject of extreme sports.
  • Discuss the extent to which you agree with the claim using any or all of the articles you have read during this unit, your own experiences, and observations.
  • Be sure to use specific examples to support your claim.
  • Your essay should be as well organized and carefully written as you can make it.
The document shared with you includes more information, resources, rubric and reflection questions.
