Your students may have mastered writing a basic paragraph with a beginning, middle, and end, but what about a variety of paragraph types? Today’s students are required to write paragraphs in a variety of genres, such as informative, persuasive, narrative, descriptive, and instructive paragraphs.

This software program contains lessons that each focus on a different type of advanced paragraph writing. For each type of paragraph, they learn the requirements for the paragraph and what makes that type of paragraph unique. They see an example paragraph, and they watch and listen to someone writing that particular kind of paragraph. Finally, they practice writing the given type of paragraph. The interactive multimedia program has narration and activities built within a space odyssey plot. Students can print out notes and handouts throughout the program if their computer is connected to a printer. Teachers score and provide feedback for student practice attempts. Folders of printable materials and an instructor’s guide are also included on the CD. With purchase of each CD is a license to download it onto eight computers.
