SWBAT prepare to create their own structure to eventually plan out how they want to write their essay

Lesson Introduction: (5 min)

(Activate background knowledge & set purpose)

I will build on what they remember from the previous classes; editing and goal setting. I will have the class on
the back rug in the classroom and explain how after reading over all of their work the day before that I noticed
large sum of students need additional help and understanding of the term, paragraph. I will have a chart of
Writing a Paragraph and explain the key parts and components of writing a persuasive essay is by making
sure each paragraph includes all of the parts. I will stop and ask questions about making sure each sentence is a
complete thought, and ensuring they know that every paragraph has multiple sentences and is never a long run-
on sentence. I will ask students to raise their hands and be honest of writing paragraphs was included on their
goal sheet or if they think they need to work towards it for the future.
Activities/Procedures: (10 min)

Lesson Plans are conducive to student achievement and focus on PA State CC standards and objectives

Once I believe the students can explain to me how to use a paragraph correctly I will move on explaining the
Persuasive Writing Graphic Organizer (See attachment) to help them map out their papers. It will give them
time to find out what information they know and what more information they need to know. I will ask students
about who is going to know more about the topic and what they can tell others in their stories. I will call on
some (about three or four) students and ask them to share their topics or call on them myself about their topics
to prove a point on what I and other students might not know. I can call on the student that shared theirs a few
days ago and how her opening paragraph encouraged students to want to go eat pizza. We want our readers to
want to do and think the same way as we, the writers do. Although we cant continue our writing until we take
the time to start our organizers and try for ourselves. After I hand every one an organizer while they are still
seated I will ask the class whether or not they can think of two reasons to support their thesis/topic sentence. If
students are having trouble I will ask them to stay seated or as a whole think of different ways and reasons to
help support their claims. Once everyone has at least two reasons they will return to their seats or writing stops
around the room.

Closing& Assessment: (20 min)

Once the students return to their seats or designated areas they will pull out their writing notebooks and open
them up and gather their ideas for complete or help fill in their graphic organizers. I will go around the room
and help assist students that may still be struggling or may need assistance with their writing along the way
before writing more in their writing notebooks or finishing the graphic organizer.
