TRY THIS TOMORROW: THE ABSOLUTE BEST
Grub Street’s Best of New York series has gotten me thinking about the many ways students could use this “absolute best’ structure in their own writing to describe a topic they are knowledgeable and passionate about.
Some of my favorite examples are:
The Absolute Best Ice Cream Sandwiches in New York City
The Absolute Best Veggie Burgers in New York City
The Absolute Best Pancakes in New York City
These absolute best lists combine description, analysis, and persuasion. I can see students creating their own lists of the absolute best books they read during the year, teams in the WNBA, episodes of Star Trek, cookie recipes…the possibilities are endless!
