Yesterday, I unveiled the March Madness Reading for Information lesson plan along with a March Madness writing assignment. Today, I’m going to toss in a rubric for the 4-paragraph essay.

Here are some links to support some of the requirements of this essay.

  1. How to Write the Introduction to an Essay
  2. How to Hook the Reader in the Introduction of an Essay
  3. How to Write a Conclusion
  4. How to Use Evidence in Writing

I also have a nice, little pdf on teaching the types of essays. It includes “How to Write a Persuasive Essay,” “How to Write a Cause and Effect Essay” and “How to Write a Problem/Solution Essay.” Each lesson contains common core objectives, instructions, notes, and a graphic organizer. It’s $2.50. If you prefer, you can pick up a similar set of lessons for “How to Write an Article Critique,” “How to Write an Informational Article,” “How to Write a Literary Analysis” and “How to Write a Tall Tale” for a $1.50.
