PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A frequent question we writing teachers get is how to write a paragraph. Most writing instruction for paragraphs includes the three major ingredients in a well-constructed body paragraph: the topic sentence, support, and a concluding sentence. What these guides fail to show kids is what "support" looks like and how to go about crafting it. This guide gives them concrete, clear instruction how to write those supportive sentences. I've also included a sample paragraph based on Of Mice and Men.

How to Write a Plump Paragraph has been a staple in my freshmen English classes for years. I've also used it for older students who struggle with some of the fundamentals of writing. I even had a college history professor ask my permission to use it for her students after her son (my student) found such success in writing after using it.

I have students highlight the handout, and I've had tons of kids laminate it to save it for future use.
