answer the question and follow the steps

This is your first project assignment. Your task is to take what you have learned about PIE paragraphs, formal writing and incorporating sources into writing and develop a strong paragraph.

Your paragraph should have:

  • A clear point that is an opinion, not a fact.
  • Information that is a quote from “Brainology” that is properly introduced and cited according to our Incorporating Quotes Worksheet.
  • Explanation: An analysis/explanation of the quote you selected as information. Explain to the reader how your information proves your point.

Once you have read “Brainology,” write a PIE paragraph that is a minimum of 300 words long and answers the following question:

What is one way that having a growth mindset helps students succeed?

Your Point should directly answer the question. Your Information should be a quote from the article that supports that answer, and your explanation should explain the why.

Step 3:

Submit your paragraph for grading. Be mindful of the clock. I will not accept any paragraphs past the 2 hour time limit.

Note, you will not be able to attach a file, so please make sure your writing is in the text box.
