Don't worry, be happy! Help your students learn how to write the first paragraph of their informative essays with this fun and upbeat PowerPoint presentation, complete with sound (who doesn't relax with a little Bob Marley during the transitions, right?). I use the Big, Bang, Boom method of essay writing, which is clearly outlined in this presentation. Your students will learn how to identify the key words in a prompt, write a thesis, and construct an introduction that is sure to score well on any state writing test. Fun, easy, and will not intimidate your students. Check out my other essay writing presentations, too!
