PARAGRAPH WRITING: THE ROLE OF RELIGION IN COLONIAL AMERICA
This lesson builds on students’ background knowledge with writing strong paragraphs that they developed during Module 1. For their writing in this unit, students use the threecolumn graphic organizer to organize their new learning. It is helpful to expose students to a variety of planning tools to help them organize their thinking and writing.
In this lesson, the teacher will model how to write a paragraph from notes taken in a three column graphic organizer. The model is about the topic of farming in colonial America; students then follow a similar process as they write about another topic, religion.
