Location: Yokosuka Middle School
Yokosuka Middle School (YMS) is designating Jan. 23 as FRIES Day. On this day, teachers will introduce FRIES to the students and have them apply it in the various subject areas. So what is FRIES? FRIES is an acronym that stands for:
• Facts and Figures
• Example and Expert Testimony
• Sensory Details
FRIES is part of the YMS continuous school improvement process and it will help our students by teaching them how to improve their writing. Specifically, it will encourage students to use more supporting information and details in their writing. The FRIES acronym is easy for students to understand, and better yet, easy to remember. Thus, when they sit down to write a paper, whether it is a fictional story or a persuasive argument, they will incorporate FRIES to improve their writing.
FRIES will also help Yokosuka Middle School to meet our first school Improvement goal – “All students at Yokosuka Middle School will improve their writing skills by including supportive details.”
