Product Description

This presentation guides students through the process of writing a body paragraph using the PEEL method: Point, Evidence, Elaboration, and Link. There are 20 fully-animated slides—all editable--with lots of examples. Each component is introduced and modeled. This lesson covers the basics of:

  • Writing a topic sentence
  • Citing Evidence Using Direct and Indirect Quotes (Paraphrasing)
  • Signal Phrase & Parenthetical Citations
  • Elaboration Techniques
  • Linking Big Ideas

Six different elaboration techniques are presented: facts and statistics, examples, definitions, reasons, importance, and process. Here, students are challenged to analyze six examples of elaboration and identify which type it represents. A free elaboration handout detailing each technique is available as a separate download. Finally, the lesson notes the importance of ending each body paragraph with a sentence (or two) that link it to either the thesis statement or to the next paragraph.

This presentation complements my Introduction PowerPoint and was originally developed as a companion to my Argumentative Essay Packet. A game-like matching activity, the Elaboration Station, was designed as a lesson follow-up.

This presentation is text-editable, so you can adapt it to your needs.
