Beliefs of Judaism: Paragraph Writing

Beliefs of Judaism Paragraph: Overview  Today our objective is to transform what we have learned about the core beliefs of the religion of Judaism into a well-written and well-organized expository paragraph that demonstrates our developing understanding.

You can find the document Beliefs of Judaism: Expository Paragraph in your Social Studies Google Classroom. The document includes a paragraph graphic organizer and a list of helpful transition words (similar to what you see featured below) to help you with the construction of your paragraph. You will also need to utilize your Basic Beliefs of Judaism - Notetaking Guide as a resource. Today I will model how to use each tool and resource, and show you how to get started on writing your paragraph. A rubric outlining how the paragraph will be assessed can also be found below.

Homework  A final draft of your Beliefs of Judaism: Expository Paragraph must be completed by Friday, December 11.
