Product Description
This resource uses an analogy to clarify the terms of P.I.E., a paragraph formula for academic writing widely used in colleges and high schools. While students can easily understand the POINT element of P.I.E., some students have trouble distinguishing between the ILLUSTRATION and EXPLANATION portions of this formula.

A quick PowerPoint presentation using a courtroom drama as a comparison helps to show how ILLUSTRATIONS function as evidence and support and how EXPLANATION functions as the closing argument of a paragraph.
