All too often, students lack foundational paragraph skills when they are asked to write in the genres. Using an I do – we do – you do model for instruction, participants in this hands-on, interactive session will work towards developing a series of skills that will take writers from an initial idea to a written product. They will practice with idea generation, categorization, and generating topic, supporting, and concluding sentences.


Participants will be able to...

  • List a series of steps to take writers from idea to paragraph
  • List a repertoire of strategies to help fledgling writers develop paragraph skills
  • Describe how to model and gradually release paragraph writing to students
