Product Description
This tool and resource for students outlines the parts of an effective body paragraph- topic/hook, transition, cited evidence from research as well as elaboration to strengthen the argument. It gives students a body paragraph as a sample that includes author's craft, transitions, paraphrasing, a direct quote, and the use of the cause and effect text structure. All of this aligns with the Teacher's College Argument Writing Rubric, but would be useful to use with any rubric (as the expectations are well-above state models and samples found online).

Color-coded as well so students can easily see the parts. Great for mini-lessons, small groups, tools and resources for students, and even struggling writers.

This can also be used a checklist to help students self-assess or evaluate their own body paragraphs.
