One of my students recently claimed that these handouts are "GOLD." That's high praise from a 16-year-old! I hope these introduction and conclusion paragraph drafting materials are as helpful to your students as they are to my own. These materials work best for a literary analysis essay but could be adapted for other types of essays.
