In order to succeed in coursework as well as various state and national assessments, students must have an understanding of basic and expanded paragraphs. Participants in this workshop will learn a structured, sequential approach to teaching the basic and expanded paragraph, including idea generation, categorization, and writing topic, supporting, and concluding sentences as well as transitions. Then, they will spend time with each of the major genres, examining useful templates, exploring hands-on strategies for instruction, and practicing with each concept introduced. Participants will leave with skills they can use the very next day in their classrooms.
