5 Paragraph Essay Outline

5 Paragraph Essay Outline
Product Description
This is an outline for a 5 paragraph essay. The teacher will need to explain the sections (ie. introduction, body, and conclusion) in his/her own way. For ideas on this, you may look at my blog. For experienced writers, this may be a two-day activity. For beginning writers, it may take a week.


After the outline is completed, I always check it for completeness and accuracy. After that, I do a lesson about transition words and pass out a list of words and phrases. Then students write the "sloppy copy" using the outline and transitions.
