In this download, I have included three separate handouts. The first one is an example of a literary paragraph written about The Glass Castle using the format, Statement/Proof/Analysis. This helps students to see how to structure their paragraphs and integrate text. The second handout is a worksheet with many examples of topic sentences taken from student writing. The class is asked to assess each topic sentence; I have provided an answer key for this. I found that my students benefitted greatly from isolating topic sentences and discussing what they contain or lack. The last handout is a worksheet that includes three partial paragraphs taken from student writing. Students are to revise these paragraphs as directed. I have included an answer key for this, too. I am focusing on how to incorporate proof, reflect on that proof, analyze in relation to the topic sentence, and then link back to the thesis. I had great success using these materials with my freshmen this year. I hope you do, too.
