Teaching Paragraph & Essay Writing, along with Grading Samples

First, the usual handout, then a visual handout for how to teach writing a paragraph. Then, using the same visual, it can be extended for writing a five-paragraph essay. After those, a handout on writing a good topic sentence. Followed by how to narrow an idea down to a specific topic that can be managed within an essay. Then three suggestions for how to grade essays. These are posted as jpegs. Please feel free to use them. They really helped me in teaching writing.
