Paragraph Writing Strategy

The Paragraph Writing Strategy is a strategy for organizing ideas related to a topic, planning the point of view and verb tense to be used in the paragraph, planning the sequence in which ideas will be expressed, and writing a variety of topic, detail, and clincher sentences.

The program consists of two products: an Instructor's Manual and a Student Lessons Manual. The Instructor's Manual features a systematic sequence of instructional procedures; the student lessons manual features exercises that correspond to the instructional procedures.

Research results showed that the students earned an average of 40 percent of the points available when writing a paragraph on the pretest and 71 percent average of the points when writing a paragraph on the posttest.
