Weekly Paragraph

 Students are expected to write a paragraph almost every week: 

 Mondays – students brainstorm ideas for their paragraph

Tuesdays – students write a sentence for each brainstorm idea (numbered),  and write an effective opening and closing sentence

Wednesdays – students write a rough draft of their paragraph

Thursdays – students use peers to revise and edit their work

Fridays – students hand in their paragraphs
