PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is designed to help students build knowledge about writing great introductory paragraphs using a Common Core basis. The lesson can be taught in one of three ways. One way is for you or a substitute to teach this lesson in one to two class periods. A second way is for you to divide the days that have two pages and teach each page as a bell ringer on a separate day so the lesson will last for eight or nine days. The third way is the way I planned the lesson to be taught which is as mini-lessons every day for a week. This allows students to absorb the concept and use it in several ways over a longer time period. In this way, the knowledge should stay with them.
I intended these activities to be used first thing in class every day as a bell-ringer activity. They are straight-forward and simple so that students can absorb the basic concepts easily.

This lesson contains:
• All teacher instructions
• A handout and worksheet on writing the first one or two sentences of an introductory paragraph with KEY
• A handout and worksheet on writing the middle sentences and thesis statement of an introductory paragraph with KEY
• A worksheet on defining and using the parts to a good introductory paragraph with KEY
• An assignment to practice writing an introductory paragraph with Check List
• An objective quiz over introductory paragraphs with KEY

Have fun with this direct approach to teaching how to write good introductory paragraphs!
