The hardest part of writing an expository essay is creating developed paragraphs. This PPT was designed to give your students practice with creating paragraphs that allow the reader to connect to the writing.
In this set:
10 topic sentence slides
10 mentor paragraphs that show how the author expanded the topic sentence
1 introduction slide that tells students the directions
By practicing the art of developing paragraphs, students can become more successful with expository writing without having to create a brand new essay every day. With this pack, you have access to 2 weeks of paragraph practice!
This can be used as whole group, small group, and even intervention groups!
This is NOT a step by step approach. It was designed to provide students with a topic sentence for them to expand upon by adding details. There is also a well developed mentor paragraph that can be used as an example before or after students practice developing their own.
