For students to become skillful at reports, essays, and other kinds of
writing assignments, they must understand how a paragraph is constructed
and what makes it powerful. From there, they can move onto longer
pieces. Here, Adele Fiderer presents a series of mini-lessons to guide
students along that path—from writing single paragraphs to crafting
multi-paragraph pieces. You’ll also find reproducible activities and
checklists that support the lessons, as well as superb student models.
