This PowerPoint presentation is designed to introduce or review the BEET strategy for writing body paragraphs in explanatory or informative essays.
BEET is a mnemonic that guides the students through body paragraph writing:
B - baby thesis (one point of a larger thesis)
E - evidence (cited evidence from the text)
E- elaboration (an explanation that includes why the evidence is important to prove or support the baby thesis)
T- transition (smooth movement from one paragraph to the next)
