As you know, students are expected to write a 5 paragraph persuasive essay. This is due on Friday, April 28th. They are to answer one of the questions in the post below. Students are given graphic organizers to help them organize each paragraph.
Here is a photo of our classroom bulletin board which is designed to help students organize their work. The essay on the right is the essay that I am modelling for students.
Some key things to remember:
- Your thesis should be very clear and simple.
- You should state the three reasons for your thesis in the introduction and the conclusion.
- These three reasons should then make-up the body of the paragraph. That is, there should be one paragraph for each reason.
- Within each body/reason paragraph, you should have evidence for your reason. Only evidence pertaining to that reason should be included.
