The five-paragraph essay - the basis for so much middle school and high school writing... and beyond! This clear and colorful 30-slide PowerPoint slideshow gives a comprehensive overview of all the essential parts of the five-paragraph essay. The presentation could be used easily as an introduction to the essay form, or, for more advanced students, as a reminder or refresher on the elements of a strong essay. Convenient for use in the English/ELA classroom as well as the Social Studies/History classroom, but could also be easily adapted for use in a variety of other classroom settings.
