Description

These mini-lecture slides were designed to help middle school and high school students learn to write strong introductory paragraphs for literary analysis, argument, and research essays. This product includes PDF slides that can be projected as you lead a short lecture on a simple four-step formula to create a smooth, powerful launch to an essay. The download also includes a student reference page designed to be used as an assignment/practice round.

If you’d like to view a sample of how I present these slides to my freshmen, be sure to check out my TpT video or the same video on my YouTube channel that shows these introductory paragraph slides in action.
