The Body Paragraphs
Writing SOL Lesson
Another benefit of working in a group is that you learn the valuable life skill of cooperating with different types of people.
It is more beneficial to work in a group because you learn from the ideas of others.
For example, to prepare for a recent U.S. History test, my class mates and I formed a study group. Although I thought I knew the most effective way to study for tests - by writing and memorizing facts - one of my friends showed me his strategy of highlighting key words in the text.
I incorporated this strategy into my study and, as a result, I earned the highest grade ever on a history test. This example shows how I benefited from working in group.
When we benefit from working with a group by learning new ideas, we can then share these new ideas with others.
Let's Review.
Turn & Talk.
Get that BODY in shape!
Okay, let's see this formula in action!
Guess what? You've already written your thesis for your 3 body paragraphs. YAY!
Now, it's time to write the body paragraphs...STEP...BY...STEP...
STEP #2: PROVE IT!
STOP!

Another benefit of working in a group is that you learn the valuable life skill of cooperating with different types of people.
For instance, working in a group by definition means that a person is required to cooperate and collaborate with different personalities and learning styles. One person might prefer working while listening to music, while their group member might need music.
This will require that both group members have a dialogue in order to reach a compromise, thus teaching both the valuable life skill of cooperative work.
Feeling tired?
Like you can't go on??
What makes a well-written body paragraph?
THE BIG IDEA:
How can we grow as writers? Well, you’re in the right place! Like any skill (playing soccer, reading, driving, etc.), writing requires practice. And, like in basketball or reading, there are strategies that we can use to help us improve our writing. That’s the idea behind today’s lesson: how to write a strong, well-organized body paragraph.
The body paragraph formula:

SAY IT

PROVE IT

EXPLAIN IT

WRAP IT UP
Think about a time the benefits of working with a group or working alone. Which do you feel is more beneficial? Write to convince your teacher of your preference, either to work with a group or to work alone. Support your position with reasons and specific examples.
Circle the 2 supporting reasons & the counterclaim. These will be the body paragraphs.
STEP #1: SAY IT!
It is more beneficial to work in a group because you learn from the ideas of others.
Give examples.
For example,
For instance,
However, this argument is wrong ...
Exchange your SAY IT & PROVE IT with your shoulder partner. Does each example relate to the topic sentence?
EXPLAIN IT!
This is the topic sentence.
Give an example or evidence.
Explain how the example supports the topic sentence.
What's the big idea? Why does this matter?
Although some people argue that working alone is beneficial because there are fewer distractions which leads to more productivity,
the benefits of working in a group far outweigh those of working alone because
you learn from the ideas of others
and because
you learn a valuable life skill of cooperating with different types of people
.
On the other hand, some people argue that working alone is beneficial because there are less distractions, which leads to more productivity.

On the other hand, some people argue that working alone is beneficial because there are less distractions, which leads to more productivity.
However, this is faulty reasoning because distractions come in all types, whether or not you work alone or in a group. Someone working alone might be distracted by his/her cellphone, the Internet, or his/her own lack of focus.

However, this is faulty reasoning because distractions come in all types, whether or not you work alone or in a group. Someone working alone might be distracted by his/her cellphone, the Internet, or his/her own lack of focus.
This example shows that distractions can occur in both environments, not just in working with a group.

STEP #4: WRAP IT UP!
So what? Why does this matter?
Another benefit of working in a group is that you learn the valuable life skill of cooperating with different types of people.

Cooperative is an invaluable skill that will serve a person well in both life and work.

Thus, the benefits of working in a group far outweigh its possible disadvantages.
We did it!
You wrote three awesome body paragraphs for an SOL essay!
It has been said, “Failure is not the worst thing in the world. The very worst is not to try.” Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Take a position on this issue. Use reasons and specific examples to support your opinion.
Individual Practice....
Yes! You can do it!
