Triple-decker Paragraphs

How to Write a Tasty, Juicy Paragraph

A modified Jane Schaeffer paragraph Powerpoint created by Hollie Gustke and modified by Trina Mangione


Triple decker paragraphs

Note:

  • You will use the 11-sentence-paragraph model (or some derivation thereof) to write:

  • literary analyses—these types of writing require a careful, critical look at a work (or works) of literature.

  • argumentative essays—these types of writing begin with a clear claim that is argued throughout the essay.


Get ready to color your world

Get Ready to Color Your World!

  • Materials: When we analyze writing, we will use 3 colors of highlighters.

  • First color (yellow) is for Claims and Closing Sentences.

  • Second color (pink) is for Evidence.

  • Third color (blue/green) is for Commentary.


Step 1 claim c

Step 1: Claim (C)

  • A claim (C) is the top bun of a hamburger.

  • C = TOPIC sentence of the paragraph. (the first sentence)

  • It is the main idea that you will prove throughout your paragraph.


Example claim c

Example Claim (C)

In the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” the third pig has traits which help him succeed.

.


Step two evidence

Step Two:Evidence

EVIDENCE = Examples from the text, the meat patty of the hamburger.

EVIDENCEproves or supports your CLAIM


Example evidence e

Example Evidence (E)

In the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” the third pig has traits which help him succeed. For example, he is wise and builds his house out of sturdy brick.


Step 3 commentary cm

Step 3: Commentary (CM)

  • Commentary =

    Explanation - your conclusions, analysis, interpretation, or insight into the text.

  • CM=are the “extras” on the hamburger—the tomato, cheese, lettuce, mayo—they make it delicious!


Example commentary 2 cms

Example Commentary (2 CMs)

In the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” the third pig has traits which help him succeed. For example, he is wise and builds his house out of sturdy brick.The wolf is unable to blow down the brick house (1). This shows that the third pig is smarter than his brothers, who were both eaten by the wolf (2).


Step 4 closing sentence cs

Step 4: Closing Sentence (CS)

  • A closing sentence (CS) is the bottom bun of the hamburger.

  • A CS brings a close to the claim by wrapping up the paragraph.


Example closing sentence cs

Example Closing Sentence (CS)

In the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” the third pig has traits which help him succeed. For example, he is wise and builds his house out of sturdy brick. The wolf is unable to blow down the brick house (1). This shows that the third pig is smarter than his brothers, who were both eaten by the wolf (2).In conclusion, the third pig outsmarts not only his brothers but the “big, bad” wolf as well.

C e cm cs now what

C, E, CM, CS—Now What?

  • CHUNKING--A combination of E and CM is called a chunk.

We will use a combination (or “ratio”) of 1:2. That is, for every 1Evidence sentence, you will have 2Commentary sentences.

    • Thus,

    • Because of this,

    • Therefore,

    • Consequently,

    • This shows that


    Notice the color pattern

    Notice the color pattern:

    In the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” the third pig has the traits that help him succeed.For example, he is wise and builds his house out of sturdy brick.The wolf is unable to blow down the brick house. This shows that the third pig is smarter than his brothers, who were both eaten by the wolf.Additionally, he is a hard worker.Although it is much easier to build a house out of straw, he chooses the material that will hold up. Even though layingbricks is time-consuming, he knows it is the better choice.This oldest pig also learns his lessons.He remembers his mother taught him that predators seek out little pigs. Knowing a wolf-attack is likely, he plans out his home construction to prevent tragedy.In conclusion, the third pig’s nature enables him to outsmart not only his brothers, but the “big, bad” wolf as well.
