Write “TS” next to each topic sentence that begins a body paragraph. A topic sentence cannot be a quote; it is a sentence that introduces us to the topic of the paragraph. If a body paragraph lacks a topic sentence, write “Needs TS” at the beginning of the paragraph.
Write ‘CD’ (concrete detail) next to each quote or fact. If your partner has fewer than two CDs in any of the three body paragraphs, write “Add more CDs.”
