Do your students struggle to write good, analytical essays? Do they write a lot of researched facts without really explaining how the information applies to their claim?
Help your students write well-reached, higher-level argumentative essays by teaching them to use Schaffer Model pargraphs. This brief handout provides an outline and explanation for how to write a paragraph using the Schaffer Model. It includes very basic descriptions for each type of sentence used in the Schaffer Model pargraph.
If you are unfamiliar with the Schaffer Model more information is available at this great blog post I found here: http://genius.com/Mr-varnell-schaffer-paragraph-model-annotated
Great for special education and English language learners!
