PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Rather than another step-by-step paragraph of upstanding advice, students will use tongue-in-cheek advice on gloriously flunking an English course to practice sequencing sentences into logical order and eliminating those that break unity.

Lower level students often have an easier time understanding logical order when they can see the sentences arranged in different ways. Allowing students the time to manipulate the sentences/sentence chunks into order better allows them the opportunity to visualize complete paragraphs with logical order.

This activity reinforces the idea that both the topic sentence and concluding sentence are just one sentence each, while supporting sentences make up the main body of a paragraph. In addition, students will more easily see how a concluding sentence is similar to a topic sentence when they can first compare them side-by-side.

This resource includes:
✔ Instructions for teachers
✔ One-page numbering worksheet (number sentences in correct order)
✔ One-page sequencing activity (12 cards that must be cut out)
✔ Answer keys
✔ Brainstorm page
✔ Graphic organizer for students to use when writing their own paragraphs
✔ Outline handout for students to use when writing their own paragraphs
✔ Self-review page
✔ Peer-review page

Students will get a kick out of the advice given on how to fail an English course. They will likely be sharing their own tips as they sequence the paragraph.

This activity was created for low-level adult/high school ESL students.
