Lesson Plan - Get It!
Think about this: "Where is the best place to begin when writing an essay?" Discuss your ideas with your teacher.
Welcome back to the second Related Lesson in the Writing Essays series!
In the previous Related Lesson, found in the right-hand sidebar, you learned that an introductory paragraph is developed by incorporating an attention-grabber with a thesis statement.
In this lesson, you will develop the body paragraphs of your essay.
Remember, throughout this series, you will develop a five-paragraph essay. Be sure to follow the Related Lessons in order, and save each completed draft because you will continue to build on your previous work as you move through the series.
Let's begin this lesson with a review of what you learned in the previous lesson, followed by an introduction to writing a body paragraph.
Watch Writing Ninjas: How To Write A Five-Paragraph Essay (below). The video will stop at three minutes and sixteen seconds (3:16), when you have reached the review of the body paragraph section. You will return to this video in the next lesson.
As you watch the video, take notes listing the components needed to create a good body paragraph in your essay. Share your notes with you parent or teacher.
You will begin working on your body paragraphs before the end of this lesson.
Before moving on to the next section, review the introductory paragraph you wrote in the previous Related Lesson and make changes or additions where needed.
