This Powerpoint Presentation walks students through the steps of creating a strong 5 paragraph writing piece. It can be used for any type of writing that requires an introduction, 3 or more topic paragraphs, and a closing. Most of the presentation is designed to make each next step appear one at a time. I have used this for retelling stories and writing about an experience. I have noticed much stronger writing with my students following this format. The presentation also includes outlines of the graphic organizers the students use in creating their own 5 paragraph writing piece.
(I received this outline from a co-worker, not sure where she received it from. I have edited it to incorporate my own writing lessons.)
