This is a fully editable word document containing 5 sample counterclaim paragraphs responding to the same prompt. There are 2 low paragraphs, 2 medium paragraphs, and 1 high paragraph. This document asks the students 15 questions to guide their analysis of each of the paragraphs. It asks the students to find each element of the counterclaim paragraph and highlight with a different color it so that the students will have a visual representation of what each paragraph contains or is missing. The students are then asked to revise one of the body paragraphs in order to make it more effective. The students can complete this is small groups or individually. I will assign each student or group of students which body paragraphs to revise based on their skill level. This can be used with your own students' writing by substituting the paragraphs already there with your own sample paragraphs.
