The Paragraph Book 4

After a review of Book 3, Book 4 presents three more Expository Paragraphs (Classifying, Comparing, and Cause and Effect) and the Persuasive Paragraph. In this book, students return to the number formula and use several kinds of graphic organizers to help them structure their writing. Students receive ample practice as they write two complete paragraphs at the end of each lesson. As the lessons progress, students will gain skills that will lead them to the final goal: writing multi-paragraph essays. Every fourth lesson is a review and concludes with important revision of previously written paragraphs.
