Book 1: Writing the How-to Paragraph uses the FNTF formula (First, Next, Then, Finally) to introduce students to basic, four-sentence paragraph writing. From there, students learn how to expand their paragraphs with more details and eventually write multiparagraph essays. Throughout, they are given practice with editing marks, encouraged to use graphic organizers, and provided with ample opportunities to practice new skills. Each lesson ends with a review section, a quiz, and paragraph writing assignments.
