The Paragraph Book 2, Student Edition


Book 2 begins with a review of the editing marks and concepts learned in Book 1. Students then continue to use the FNTF formula (First…, Next…, Then…, Finally…), this time to write narrative paragraphs. They explore the difference between fact and fiction, learn alternatives to the FNTF words, add dialogue to their writing, and are presented with openers and closers. New editing marks are presented, and the use of graphic organizers is continued. Two lessons deal with easily confused words and common errors. In the final lesson, students write a multi-paragraph story. Each lesson ends with a review section, quiz, and paragraph writing assignments.

Skills addressed include the paragraph that tells a story (narrative), factual events, fiction, fables, myths, editing marks, transitional words, supporting details, direct quotes, point of view, openers and closers, reading comprehension, and writing a story.

About The Paragraph Book Series: This highly specialized writing intervention series targets middle school students with a step-by-step approach to editing, formatting, and building paragraphs while mastering the four basic writing strands encountered on standards-based tests.
