PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let's face it: Students today love their friends and dedicate much of their lives with their friends.
I taught ninth grade last year and tried to come up with a good way to teach students how essay writing can be cool and not something snooze worthy. I am also a huge "Friends" fan, so I chose a clip/concept to center my lesson around. Students loved it because it used a show they are familiar with (and was appropriate!), allowed them to reflect on their own lives, and gave personal meaning to their writing.

These 16 slides allow you to spend either a class period (or two/three) depending on how fast or slow you want to use this.

I included a clip from Friends that is two minutes long. It's a great way to generate discussion and opener to class--allows for free writing.

The other slides go step by step into the parts of a paragraph. I provide visuals, arrows, explanations, etc to help students visualize.

The slides can be changed to manipulate. If you want to use another "Friends" clip: great! Want to use another show? Why not??

I even provide the last slide as a printable "sandwich" where you can print and generate practice. If you'd like to put it on a projector and have students come up to the board and write their own ideas, great. Works well for any subject/concept.
