PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

During the past summer, I read through several hundred essays from students to determine what types of details, ideas, and sentences were interesting and unique, engaging the reader, and resulting in higher STAAR Writing Test Scores.
I came up with 14 key attributes that seemed to consistently draw the reader in and get scores of 5, 6, 7 and 8 from the two graders.
They ranged from simply using higher vocabulary or going around the word in eighty ways, to emotions, opinions, senses, dialogue, figurative language, anecdotes, etc.
This product includes sample sentences using the prompt/topic, Write about one reason you like school/4th grade.

For expository, think of the hook as your hat or hair.
The central idea statement, controlling idea statement, thesis or position statement will be head. All of these four things start with the letter H. One of the pages is a worksheet that lets your students think of their introduction in this way to make it easier to understand.
