Writing Paragraphs and Essays

  • By Mrs. Jurca
  • Revised by Mrs. Wolf

The Hamburger Model

  • Would you eat a hamburger without a bun?
  • What if it had no meat? What if the bun was on the inside and the meat and cheese were on the outside?
  • NO!
  • In the same way, you can’t write an
  • essay or a paragraph without
  • making sure you have all the right
  • parts in the right order.
  • The introduction should grab your reader’s attention and tell what your essay is about.
  • Your detail paragraphs should give information that supports what you said in your introduction.
  • The conclusion should summarize what you said in the introduction and detail paragraphs.
  • Your supporting details should give information that supports your main idea.
  • The concluding sentence should restate your main idea.

So here’s the introduction to my paper…

  • Have you ever admired a folded paper crane? If you know the art of origami, you can fold many beautiful things. Origami has been enjoyed by many cultures, but most people believe it first became popular in Japan. The Japanese especially enjoy origami because they believe it has educational benefits. But, you don’t have to be Japanese to enjoy origami and fold beautiful things.

*REMEMBER*

  • *Your introduction should GRAB your reader’s attention and make them want to keep reading!
  • *Share only general details in your introduction. Save your specific information for your detail paragraphs.
  • *Use your introduction as a guide for the rest of your paper (see the next slide)

Be an EXPERT! *Extra Credit*

  • Choose a part of an essay or paragraph and become an expert. Make a mini-poster (markers and paper are in the back of the room) about the part you choose.
  • For example, if you decide to be an expert on Conclusion, you would make a mini-poster about the conclusion. Turn in your mini-poster to be displayed in the room.
