Product Description

First Year Teacher Confession: When I asked students to write a paragraph response to a question, I automatically assumed they knew how to do that. You know what they say about those who assume… Obviously it was a disaster, but thankfully I learned from my mistakes. This lesson is the fruit of that learning.

It provides a SMART notebook lesson on how to write short answer responses (five or more sentence paragraph). It also includes a corresponding example paragraph, a short answer response to a question for the novel Among the Hidden. There are also student-written examples and a refresher SMART notebook lesson to review when students need to write short answer responses again. Finally, this includes potential questions for students to respond to from 18 DIFFERENT books; I use them in my class as part of our literature circle books but any of them could be a class book.

NOTE: The lesson could be used across multiple curriculums as it offers a guide for constructing a logical five-sentence paragraph.
