Literacy Quiz :: Expository Prewriting Stage :: 13 Jan. 2020

OBJECTIVE: Writing is a multi-process. Our quiz this week will assess how well you have mastered the pre-writing stage, and the art of taking a visual text (image), studying that text, and deciding what is happening or what may be going on in that image.  Further, we are assessing your mastery of how well you support your claim with evidence.
The Common Core standard addressed:  RL.X.1
Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text

Can you spot the grammatical error? (3rd sentence)

From a Rhinebeck, NY, restaurant menu someone sent me on line 3.7.2019:

Bia (bee-ya) is Irish Gaelic for food, sustenance and alimentation.

Our goal is to live up to the definition via the guest experience. We wish to provide nourishment in a literal, emotional, and intellectual sense. Bia’s lighting and decor, the warm banter with your server, the music, the wine and of course the food, aims to nourish and restore the spirit of everyone who chooses to spend their hard earned money in our restaurant.

The food is soulful and delicious. The hospitality gracious and warm. The drinks curated and cared for. The ambiance cozy, elegant, and inviting.
