aspects that you have used to prove to my thesis point three points and then lastly your profound thought okay if you might use it a profound thought you can indicate your understanding of the inside of the content and it's always nice to end your thesis doing a whole literary insight with a punch line okay so now we need to practice this goals so you are already divided into five groups so I'm going to let each of you practice one of the paragraphs so you are going to in a group you are going to practice writing and introduction first body paragraph second body paragraph and you can write their conclusion I really want you to practice the field writing technique when you do this so I'm going to give you instructions so we are busy reading the novel the boy in the Striped Pyjamas so this novel focuses on the second world war and what happened in house which now for this essay you need a main thesis point so the Second World War was based on the Germans who viewed themselves as superior but in the book the author pisses on the differences between you a Jewish boy and Bruno a German boy so I would like you to write an essay proving to me that you that you was superior superior and to three aspects that you can use to prove your mind this statement you can focus on physical physical superiority intellectual intellectual superiority and moral superiority okay very good okay and before you start your register what is there goes what is a register yes yes it's either formal or informal now when you write and little Hillary inside it is formal so that means that you cannot make use of any contractions so you have to make use of cannot would not do not so please be a vet in mind and then no personal pronouns are allowed so because this aside written objectively in the passive voice so you may not make use of my opinion or I think this in that you need to stay objective because you have to prove your main thesis wait okay so take out some paper with the groups okay thank you I'm going to give you five minutes and then you can practice this back for homework I need you to write your own inside make use of the three aspects the main thesis point and then when I see you again please bring your si to close so that I can mark your insight and give you feedback for when you have to write this particular essay in the exam thank you so much thank you
