I have been teaching writing for the past 8 years using a version of the Step-up-to-Writing program with great success.
Step-up-to-Writing uses colors to teach the parts of a paragraph/essay.
With this 45 slide prezi (and accompanying 6 page handout) students are introduced to the idea of using 3 different colors to help them keep track of the parts of a paragraph/essay as well as outline their essay.
They will write their own paragraph, learn how to stretch that paragraph into an essay, and are finally tasked with writing their own essay (with two different prompt options).
In the past four years, after using this packet/program, I have only had 4 students (Out of 327) not pass their writing test with flying colors!
Check out the preview page for a look at the prezi handout.
