  1. Opening
  2. Why We Should Restate Questions (Download PowerPoint)
  3. Dialogue Practice
  4. Restate Questions
  5. Closing

In Class:

As a class we discussed the meaning of the word complete especially with sentences.

Why we should restate questions was addressed using the PowerPoint. Any writer answering a question should choose to restate the question to add context to the answer. Without restating the question your answer could potentially make no sense to anyone who reads it.

We practiced a dialogue in class in partners speaking to each other while restating their questions. We realized that we don’t speak that way because it isn’t very efficient and since the person you are talking to is present they can’t take your answer out of context. However when writing, the reader wasn’t present for the question, therefore, they can easily take your answer out of context which could create numerous problems.

Writing Activity
