Students always struggle with writing an effective introduction paragraph. Using the H.O.T acronym, this lesson teaches students the essential components of introduction paragraphs: Hook, Overview, and Thesis
THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES:
*40 PowerPoint slides containing 3 mini lessons on Hook, Overview, and Thesis
*Short activities during the lessons that reinforces the content
*2 styles of note sheets to choose from
*Both blank and completed note sheets for students of different abilities & posting online
H.O.T. Intros have been a staple in my secondary English class for years! It's easy for students to remember, and the sheet is a great reference for students to go back to. I've used them both as notes, and in interactive notebooks. I've also printed the completed note sheet as a poster and used as a visual reminder on writing days.
This lesson should take 3-5 days to complete, depending on your pace.
