This paragraph model is designed for secondary students who benefit for being forced to write critical thinking answers in a structured form, rather than rambling and calling it a paragraph. The model includes prompts for each sentence of the paragraph and room for students to write. Simple design-- no cutesy graphics-- appropriate for older students.
The topic sentence is the position that the student is taking, the body sentences are evidence/ support and the last sentence is a summary.
This model is versatile for use in many classrooms, from History to English to science. It can fit any question or topic that requires a student to take a position and support it.
File is a two page PDF.
The Paragraph Model is included with any of my Critical Thinking Questions in Novel, Novella and Short Story Studies.
