This is a great resource to help students identify the different parts of an introduction paragraph while getting a chance to read solid mentor text examples!
They highlight, underline, and box the different parts of the Intro (Hook, Overview, & Thesis) and then answer questions about the structure and strength of the paragraphs.
Works great in a single class period for individual, paired, or group use!
Can be used as practice, homework, or even assessment!
The students can easily refer back to these mentor texts for assistance while writing their own introductions, and the discussions students have while they're arguing what color each sentence is have been awesome!
