The 5 Paragraph Essay for Junior High and High School Students (Part I of II)- How I Teach

January 20, 2022

Welcome to HIT---How I Teach....In this episode, I teach one of my favorites (okay, just about all writing projects are my favorites!)---the Five Paragraph Essay. Five paragraph essays have gotten a little bit of a bum rap in my opinion. Students dread them, and teachers often think they are difficult to teach (especially when they move into more persuasive types). I think just the opposite! I think five paragraph essays are super fun—and actually easy to teach because of their formulaic nature. (Sort of like---give me a list of exactly what tasks you want me to do, and I’m on it! 😉)
