How to use

this strategy:

To help students successfully use Framed Paragraphs, teachers will need to explain and model the technique on several occasions. The topic sentence is a general statement, which is followed by 3 to 5 supporting details. At the end of the frame is a closing statement. Each portion of the frame is incomplete. Students fill in the missing portions of the frame to write a complete paragraph. By using this tool, students develop superior paragraphs and learn exactly what it takes to write paragraphs.
