How to Write a Paragraph
This workbook takes you step-by-step through the construction of a strong, cohesive paragraph, beginning with unity and topic sentences, and continuing with coherence, concluding sentences, types of paragraphs, and using the writing process (which includes prewriting, writing the first draft, editing and revising, and writing the final copy). Some exercise pages are consumable, and pages are reproducible. Answers are not included; the teacher will need to be familiar with the work the student is doing.
A Complete Step-by-Step Guide for teachers and students.
This resource is designed as a companion piece to How to Write an Essay and How to Write a Composition. Its aim is to help students write various kinds of paragraphs from grades five through the first years of secondary school. It will be helpful for students at higher levels of education who have had difficulty with writing in earlier years.
The resource contains many work sheets which can be used individually by students or in groups. Many of these work sheets are most useful if completed by pairs of students. It is also advisable for students to discuss the ideas generated by the worksheets in larger groups.
Much of this resource is written from a student perspective, so that teachers may give students the pages which they need or so that students can purchase the resource to use as they write their compositions at home.
