Whether you just need to back-up, fine-tune, remediate, or are just beginning paragraph writing, this paragraph unit (including PARAGRAPH SAMPLE) will work for whatever the need-be!
Students/teachers will record a prompt, students will fill in a topic sentence, sequence/transition words, details and examples, and a concluding sentence. Then, they will review a "sample" filled-in planner as well as a sample paragraph which they will analyze by "marking up." Finally, they will be on their way to writing perfect informational paragraphs about ANY subject or topic of their/your choice or of study. Designed for multiple-uses, multi-use.
