Students will learn about / review the five steps of the writing process while practicing sequencing according to logical order and eliminating sentences that break unity.
Lower level students often have an easier time understanding logical order when they can see the sentences arranged in different ways. Allowing students the time to manipulate the sentences/sentence chunks into order better allows them the opportunity to visualize complete paragraphs with logical order.
In this activity, students will also eliminate sentences that break unity. This activity reinforces the idea that both the topic sentence and concluding sentence are just one sentence each, while supporting sentences make up the main body of a paragraph. In addition, students will more easily see how a concluding sentence is similar to a topic sentence when they can first compare them side-by-side.
