PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of the standards taught during our Outsiders Novel unit is a review of writing strong Topic Sentences. For this, we use the teaching strategy "Goldilocks" - which means that students must narrow a topic from being too broad or too narrow until it is "Just Right." (Keys to Literacy strategy)
For this handout, the students have been assigned the essay topic:
“Describe some characteristics of one of the main characters from The Outsiders" The lesson contained in this handout show the students several examples of Too Broad and the Too Narrow Topic Sentences for this essay. It then gives them Juts Right examples. Finally, there are three pretend essay topics (for the Outsiders) which students may write Too Broad, Too Narrow, and Just Right answers to practice, and three poor Topic Sentences to be strengthened.
