TOPIC SHOULD THIS SCHOOL GO TO A NON-GRADED
SYSTEM? WHY WE NEED GRADES Help us determine
how well were doing Give us incentive to do
better Show who has enough knowledge to pass
class Help employers who see our transcripts
decide who the best candidate for job is WHY
WE DONT NEED GRADES Create stress Make us
focus more on grade than information Cause
unnecessary competition, which may keep us from
pursuing our own unique style
9
NOW, USE THREE SPECIFIC RELEVANT EXAMPLES FOR
EACH MAJOR POINT.
10
MAJOR POINT Furthermore, grades motivate
students more.
USE TRANSITIONS FOR SOME EXAMPLES For instance,
for example, consider this, to illustrate, one
example, etc.
For instance, one time I received a C on an
essay in history. I knew I hadnt spent as much
time as I could on it, but I thought it was
better than a C. I spoke with the professor
about why it had been a C and not a B. He
went over the comments hed written and explained
to me how my lack of correct punctuation, my
vague wording, and my occasional disorganization
had made the paper a bit sloppy. He allowed me
to revise it, and after I made corrections, I
received a B. If I had only gotten comments on
the paper and not an actual grade, I might not
have been inspired to try to do better. Another
example is when . . . .

BE SURE TO BE AS SPECIFIC AND CONCRETE AS
POSSIBLE IN YOUR DETAILS

Lola came home from work feeling exhausted. Her
little dog ran over to her and licked her hand,
but when it saw that she was not up for playing,
it went and lay in its bed. The phone rang, but
she decided she was too tired even to answer it.
She could hear the answering machine pick up, and
then she heard her boyfriend going on and on
about his bad day. He was always calling to tell
her about his bad day, but he never really wanted
to hear about her bad day. At the moment, she
contemplated picking up the phone and telling him
she couldnt listen to him any more, that he was
driving her crazy with his nonstop complaints
about how hard his life was. However, she was
too tired to even have that discussion with him.

Lola trudged up her steps after eight hours of
dispensing soft-serve ice cream to spoiled
children and harried parents. When she flopped
onto her worn sofa, Satchmo, her small bulldog,
licked her fingers lovingly but returned to his
basket with the red blanket when he realized
thered be no tennis ball throwing today. The
phone rang. She lay there, a dead weight, and
simply stared at it. Then she heard her
boyfriend Hyrams whining voice begin droning on
about how his boss harasses him about his
slowness. Shed listened patiently to him read
his litany of work woes dozens of time before he
never once reciprocated. If shed had the
energy, she would have picked up the phone to
tell him that his incessant moaning about his
pitiful world made her blood pressure rise and
got her skin prickly with irritation. (141
