Prewrite: Generate CQs for Brainstorming
As we did in the last writing, I want you to identify CQs that will help you communicate to your audience. These CQs will also help you complete your graphic organizer in a way that makes you sound like the expert you are!
Consider yourself a "detective" when asking clarifying questions (CQs). You (the author) are trying to clarify something for the audience. You are trying to create a clear, informative answer to help the audience learn something new.
Clarifying questions guide the writer/audience, so there are ways to phrase a CQ that helps. Review the video below.

1. Create a copy of this document. Use the doc to create a list of CQs that you know your audience will "need to know" about your topic. I have given you some starter CQs to help you focus.
2. Come up with at least 7-10 CQs that will help you solidify your thoughts.
3. Use the "pre-" prewriting grid to help you get into the flow!
4. Below, submit a shareable link to the "pre-"prewriting grid so Mrs. G can see your work.
