TS- Explain the first reason that proves your THESIS using your character with a problem.

CD- Give one example, story, or dialogue about your character trying to solve the problem because of the above reason.

CM-Say why your CD is important

CS-Say your TS again in stronger more emotional words

Example:

First of all, Jose knows that he could be smarter with a new iPod Touch. Jose read in a recent Newsweek that students with “smart phones” score 35% higher on tests. That’s why he asked his parents for a new iPod touch.  Unfortunately however, Jose’s parents need to save money during this economic recession, so they told him it was impossible to get the phone. Can you imagine how hard it must have been to tell your son that he has to miss out on being smart just because of something was too expensive? This is why we must work to find ways to get Jose and all East Newark students those new iPod Touches.

TS- Explain the second reason that proves your THESIS using your character with a problem.

CD- Give one example, story, or dialogue about your character trying to solve the problem because of the above reason.

CM-Say why your CD is important

CS-Say your TS again in stronger more emotional words

Example:

Second of all, Jose knows that he could be happier with a new iPod Touch.

“Hey Jose, what’s wrong?  You look so sad today,” asked Jose’s best friend Jenny.

“Oh, wazzup, Jen?  I don’t know.  I just feel so bored and depressed.”

“No problem!  My parents just got me a new Ipod Touch.  What do you want to do?  We can call Marcos and Diana and see what they’re doing.  Or we can you’re your favorite game Nazi Zombies 2D.  Or what about taking funny pictures of ourselves and posting it to our Edmodo account?  I know!  Let’s do the fun, new Study Island assignments Mr. Mach finally assigned!  The best part is that we can listen to the New Lil Wayne album while we work on it.”

“Hey that sounds awesome!  Wow! That iPod Touch can do everything.  If I want to stay happy this winter, I have just GOT to find a way to get one.”

“Do you want to go online and research ways we can have fund raisers to get money for our school to buy one for each of us?”

“Great idea!  We will become legends in East Newark forever if we could do that!  I feel so much better already.  Thanks, Jenny.”

Can you imagine students leading happier, more interesting and fulfilling lives because an iPod Touch?  What kind of person doesn’t want children to be as happy as possible? If you don’t want the children of East Newark to be depressed, then you have to help find a way to get them all iPod Touches.
