Helping students hit the sweet spot when elaborating their written ideas can be difficult. This lesson is one that has helped my students immensely. It is an acronym that guides them when they are considering what to add to their paragraphs so that they produce creative and insightful compositions.
This product includes a PDF of my PowerPoint as well as a handout that can be printed to place in a Writer's Notebook. In addition, I recorded the lesson into a video that is approximately 6 minutes long. This video can be placed as a link on your webpage so that students who need a refresher (or who were absent) can learn at their own pace.
