Write an Argument Essay: The Hook

Warm Up  Let's get serious about reading this quarter!  Use this time to either silent read, take an Accelerated Reader test, or complete an online reading log entry.  

Write an Argument Essay: The Hook  The very beginning of your essay is called the hook because it "hooks" your readers' attention.  The hook should relate to the topic of your essay, but it can take many forms.  It can be an anecdote (a very short story), a fact, a quote, or a question.  Practice writing your 'hook' using the assignment here.  

Homework  (1.) 30 minutes of silent reading at home.  Make sure to record your reading on one of the digital reading logs available.  Our weekly Google Form reading log is here and the Google Spreadsheet reading log can be found here.  (2.)  'Write an Argument Essay' Assignment (Steps 5).
