A LYS Teacher asks the following:
What are the best sentence stems for critical writing?
Good question. A good critical writing stem meets two criteria:
1. The sentence stem requires the writer to make a connection between the sentence subject and something else. For example: prior knowledge, a past experience, a prediction, another setting, etc.
2. The sentence stem requires the writer to think and operate at a level of rigor that is higher than comprehension.
If the sentence stem does the above two things, you are on the right track!
Think. Work. Achieve.
