Paragraph Frames

Paragraph frames provide an outline that students can use to frame their thoughts. Expository frames teach students the different parts of a paragraph.

Explanation frames teach students to focus on important information in their writing. (PDF. Download).

Purpose: to teach students the three parts of the paragraph 

  • introduction – body – conclusion

Why and How would I use it?

I would use this strategy when teaching students the organizational pattern required for a certain type of writing.  It helps them learn to develop the body of the paragraph through further generalization and details.

I would have them write a sentences that begins with a transition and names . Students will have a list at the bottom of the link sheet fro suggested transitions.
