These templates are aligned for use with a writing program which asks students to give a topic sentence (TS), Concrete detail/quote (CD), commentary (CM), and concluding sentence (CS).
Included are sentence frames which students can incorporate at the beginning of each sentence to help with their analysis. This is ideal for analyzing an expository/ non-fiction text under the new common-core standards in all grade levels and subject areas!
Ideal for English Learners -- students ask for these handouts when they need to write a paragraph (for any subject). These sentence frames and outlines make all students sound like expert writers, allowing students to write with confidence.
The 5 paragraph essay format is based off of the 1 paragraph template, but expanded so students can see how all paragraphs would fit together to form a cohesive essay.
