Derived from: Reba Flanders, Okemah Middle School; Okemah, OK

Grade level: Original source specified grades 7-9, but in order to use this lesson as a preparation for eighth grade writing assessment purposes, I chose to lower the grades to 6-8.

Purpose: This lesson provides students at the middle school level with a visual layout of how to create paragraph unity, since many students at this stage of their writing have difficulty in expressing their thoughts on paper in a sequential manner.

Objective: Using a fan model developed by the student, the students will be able to construct a well-written paragraph which contains a topic sentence and five supporting sentences. (Domain: cognitive; Bloom: application)

Materials: A large pleated fan, such as a fireplace-cover fan, or one folded from posterboard
