Teachers, this will be a life saver for some of your students! I have students in high school now, three years after leaving my classroom, STILL using this formula! This formula breaks down each sentence in an introduction paragraph (for either an expository or informational essay) and explicitly states what items need to be included for a complete and thorough introduction. In this zip file, you will find the blank student handout and the teacher guide to filling out this formula. This is great for students that are more "math minded" and struggle with writing or "knowing what to write".
