Paragraph 2

Tonight, students will write the second paragraph of their persuasive essay/letter. This paragraph is their first PROOF paragraph, but the second actual paragraph of the essay. If you need a refresher on 5 paragraph essay structure, head on back to the slide show from October 15th on writing responses to text. The information you want begins at slide 12. The basic structure is the same for responses to text and persuasives: Introductory paragraph, 3 proof paragraphs, concluding paragraph.
