Writing better paragraphs

Some students experience difficulties in constructing well-structured paragraphs. This form assumes that paragraphs should start with a statement of their theme, develop the theme, then provide evidence and examples before linking to the next paragraph. This form ignores any evaluative element which teachers may need to add if that skill is required by the title. Teachers may want to adapt the form to suit their own subject and ideas about paragraphing.

The activity should end with students writing their paragraph in full. Although best completed individually it would be useful for students to compare and evaluate each other’s paragraphs.
