Students need to learn the rules in order to break them. Teach students about five paragraph essay structure with this bundle of lessons, ready to use before or during ANY essay assignment (or before standardized testing!).

Each lesson is intended to be concise and occur in one class period. They are introductory in nature so that you can teach the skill for the very first time, OR use as a quick review to get all of your students on the same page. If you need to differentiate instruction, these also work to teach remedial skills to a specific group of students.

This bundle is 27 pages across 9+ days of separate Common Core-aligned lessons. All of these products add up to a $12+ value; save over 15% by buying them all together in one easy download! Please click on the links below to see full descriptions, previews, and customer ratings for each product.
