Composition

Students will prepare for their Writing STAAR test by writing expository essays all year. Students will be encouraged to write creatively through journal writing as well. 

I try to give each class time to work on one paragraph at a time, day by day. The prompt will be given on Mondays, and the final draft will due on Fridays. 

If you need help, follow this:
I. Introduction (Hook, connecting sentence, thesis statement)
II. Body - part a
Topic sentence - reason #1
explanation
real world example
III. Body - part b
Topic sentence - reason #2
explanation
real world example
