PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Break the structure of a five paragraph essay down sentence-by-sentence for your students with this essay skeleton. The general prompts are able to use with any basic five paragraph essay.

I use these skeletons all year long with my junior level English students, and towards the end of the school year with my sophomores. Students are often intimidated by writing essays, but these help give writers an overview of the structure. I have watched anxious writers visibly relax when reminded that they have an essay skeleton for reference on an assessment.

This purchase includes three essay skeletons with just the prompts (formatted two per page) and three essay skeleton with blanks. Each format includes one each of basic, argumentative, and compare-contrast. I like to handout the first version when I start a writing unit to give students an overview of what we are working towards. I use the second version for first-timers to the five paragraph structure and require students to pre-plan their essay before writing it completely.

Both documents are editable, so you can make changes as needed for your course's requirements.

I developed these for my junior level English classes, but have found success using them with younger students as well. One junior asked for another copy of it at the end of the year, claiming he was going to keep it in his wallet for next year!
