    agree or disagree? Use specific reasons and examples to develop your essay.
    REQUIRED: Use the 3 or 4 paragraph essay outline to plan what you are going to write.
  • 6. Using the Outline- Last Night’s HW
    Use the outline TO PLAN YOUR ESSAY.
    Start by writing down your thesis statement.
    Use your thesis statement to write your topic sentence(s) for your body (support) paragraph(s).
    Restate your thesis (say the same thing using different words) to begin your conclusion.
    Now, think of ONE example for each of your topic sentences. Write this on SUPPORT A
    SUPPORT B and C will be Your EXPLANATION
  • 7. Using the Outline- Supporting Details
    Now, think of ONE example for each of your topic sentences. Write this on SUPPORT A
    SUPPORT B and C will be Your EXPLANATION
  • 8. Using the Outline- Anchor
    The purpose of your anchor sentence is to help you relate the point you made in your paragraph back to your thesis statement.
    It should answer this question:
    How does your example support your thesis statement?
  • 9. Writing The Introduction
    Begin with a hook that introduces your topic. (1-2) Sentences
    Write your thesis. (from your outline)
    Your introduction should be around 5 sentences long.
  • 10. Body Paragraphs
    Begin with a topic sentence (from your outline). This should reflect your first reason (from your thesis) for feeling the way you do about your topic.
    Support your Topic Sentence with Supporting Sentences.
    Your support sentences should give an example to support your topic sentence. Follow your example with an explanation of how it supports your TS or Thesis.
    Sentence starters: “This shows that…” “This illustrates…” “This means that…”
  • 11. Body Paragraphs
    The last sentence of your body paragraph(s) is called the “ANCHOR” sentence. This sentence ties the point you made in your paragraph back to your thesis statement.
    Think of it as the “concluding sentence” for your body paragraph.
    Answer this question: HOW DOES THIS EXAMPLE PROVE YOUR THESIS TO BE TRUE?
  • 12. Conclusion
    • Your last sentence should be ONE of the following:
    • 13. Give a warning and state the consequences for failing to act
    • 14. Give advice and a possible solution to the problem
    • 15. Tell the reader what he or she should think, do, or feel
    • 16. Tell what lessons or truths should now be understood
    Refer to your hook
