Description

Teach students to write outstanding introduction and conclusion paragraphs for persuasive essays and informative, explanatory, or expository essays.

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!

These lessons include three parts for both opening and closing paragraphs. Examples and practice are provided for each part.

Opening Paragraphs:
Hook/engage the reader
✅ Transition to thesis
✅ Thesis statement

Closing Paragraphs:
Connect to the hook in the opening paragraph
Restate the thesis in different words
Call to action / Concluding statement
