Product Description
Break the structure of a five paragraph essay down sentence-by-sentence for your students with this essay skeleton. The general prompts can be used with any basic five paragraph essay.

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!

This purchase includes an essay skeleton with just the prompts (formatted two per page) and an essay skeleton with blanks. 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.
