Perfect for the 7th grade STAAR writing exam, this outline helps students develop a four paragraph expository essay for any topic. Students fill in information organized by paragraph, such as their hook, thesis statement, and body paragraphs. A great introduction to expository writing that could easily be modified for struggling learners. The body paragraphs use the HMSCS evidence strategy, which is outlined below.
Students provide examples/evidence in body paragraphs by using the HMSCS tactic:
H - historical
M - movies/books
S - sports/famous people
C - current event
S - someone I know, including myself
