Product Description
This product contains all the tools you will need to teach students how to write a 5-paragraph essay! It is fully aligned with Common-Core writing standards, and uses step-by-step and scaffolded processes to help students successfully compose an analytic essay.

Although the essay is designed around Othello, it can VERY easily be adapted and used to teach any 5-paragraph essay.

The bundle here includes a packet for guiding the writing process, templates for all paragraphs, rubrics for all paragraphs and a final paper, and a PowerPoint to accompany your teaching. Below is some more information about the individual materials!

The 12-page packet guides students through the process of writing a 5-paragraph essay on a character from Othello. (Note: The assignment can be easily modified to use to analyze a character from any other literary work.) The essay focuses on choosing a character, identifying a trait the character possesses, and finding three quotations from the text to support this claim. The packet then walks students through an orderly and sequential process (with examples!) for strong quotation selection, thesis writing, essay structuring/building, style and mechanics considerations, and MLA formatting (an overview of the entire paper and the Works Cited). The packet also includes step-by-step directions (with pictures) for formatting a paper in MLA for both a Microsoft Word document and a Google Doc. There is also a page dedicated to showing students how to embed quotations and use in-text citations. The final two pages of the packet contain a sample essay for students to use as a model. The sample essay is broken down into sections and labeled to guide student learning.

There are writing templates for the introduction paragraph, body paragraph 1, body paragraph 2, body paragraph 3, and the conclusion. The students can use these to keep their writing organized!

The rubrics included are for individual paragraph so that you can grade incrementally, if you choose. There is also a grading rubric for a final essay!

The 52-slide PowerPoint is well designed, attention grabbing, and directly aligned with the packet, templates, and rubrics included with the bundle. It makes teaching the writing process so much easier, as the students are able to follow along in their packets while you project the same information on the board!
