~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No matter what type of writing you are doing, writing opening and closing paragraphs can be extremely challenging. This lesson breaks down the parts of each and provides practice. It makes it much easier for students to understand what to do and how to do it, so they actually write! Note, you could use the same lesson for other informative/explanatory writing, but, in the closing paragraph, a call to action is specific to persuasive writing.

These lessons teach students that opening and closing paragraphs have three parts each. Examples and practice are provided for each part. (Note: For creating interest in an opening paragraph and connecting to interest in the closing paragraph, students will need to practice with a prompt you give them.)

Opening Paragraphs: Hook/engage the reader, transition to thesis, and thesis statement.

Closing paragraphs: Connect to the hook in the opening paragraph, restate the thesis in different words, and write a call to action.

The thumbnails show excerpts from the Opening Paragraph lesson presentations.
