Product Description
Body Paragraph Organizer/Template: TEEC for Writing the Perfect Essay Paragraph

-This is a simple but effective organizer designed to help students write an organized body paragraph. The organizer features a review of the basic parts of the paragraph:

→T: topic sentence
→E: evidence
→E: explanation
→C: concluding sentence

The organizer teaches students this TEEC paragraph pattern. The included TEEC table forces students to think of the individual parts of the paragraph, and it strengthens their ability to write one effectively from start to finish. Finally, the table requires students to write each part of the paragraph (topic sentence, evidence, etc.) in order and in its own corresponding section.

-You can use this organizer in several ways. First, there is a space in the center of the document for students to record a thesis statement, if they have composed one. If so, have students record their thesis statement and connect the subsequent body paragraph to it. Second, if you just want students to practice writing a structured paragraph, have them skip the thesis statement component, give them a topic, and have them write a paragraph that reflects the TEEC format. Lastly, you could even make multiple copies of the organizer and have students use each table to help them write a different body paragraph for an essay.

-I hope this helps your students learn (or review) the basic parts of the body paragraph! Both older and younger students can utilize this product.
