3. Students will discuss in partners: What is the purpose of appositives? Why should
we use them in our writing? (DOK 2) How can appositives help us avoid plagiarism
and cite sources? (DOK 3)
4. Students will answer question 2 with shoulder partners. Write correct answer on
the board and allow students to revise, if needed.
5. In partners, students will read the passage from the text in the last activity. They
will write a sentence that cites the passage and summarizes it.
NEPF IS 2.3 Task progressively develops all students cognitive abilities. The activity
focuses on how to cite sources, which is an essential skill needed in the next embedded
assessment. Here, however, they start of by reading many examples, citing their own

source using a guided question, citing a source with a partner, and finally citing
individually during their writing prompt.
6. Writing Prompt: Revise the body paragraph you wrote in activity 3.11. Use the
examples of evidence on the board if you find you need to provide more evidence.
7. After students revise paragraphs they will mark them for appeals to logos and
circle at least one appositive phrase.
