The Weekly Text, November 6, 2015: Two Paragraph Analysis Worksheets

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been asked to participate in a special institute class in my school on writing the five-paragraph essay. I find this approach, particularly for the struggling students I serve, confining and tedious. Nonetheless, I set out this year to write my own scaffolded curriculum for this class, which meets once a week. Here are two paragraph analysis worksheets that I developed to use in helping students understand the underlying structure of paragraphs. The reading is high interest, and the questions basic.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
