This is part two of my persuasive essay series! In Texas, sophomores are tested on their ability to write a persuasive essay on the state test (STAAR). I can guide you and your students step-by-step through the process to success if you use my series of persuasive essay bundles.
Have you ever assigned an essay prompt, and students spent most of the period staring at the paper, talking to their classmates, or doing other things that *WERE NOT* writing? Until I found this method, that was my struggle, too! Here's an easy way to model and guide them through writing two body paragraphs!
This bundle includes:
- a detailed lesson plan with TEKS, ELPS, and each step of the Madeline Hunter lesson cycle.
- a seven-slide PowerPoint to project to guide you and the students through each step.
- a model anchor chart for you to recreate on poster paper as you teach the lesson.
- a model body paragraph for your students to annotate and analyze.
- an annotated body paragraph for you to refer to as you teach the students.
- a graphic organizer for students to write their own body paragraph on.
This lesson was created for the English II TEK 16D, but it can be used in teaching any persuasive essay. This body paragraph lesson is also easily adapted for any type of body paragraph - expository, analytical, etc.
