step 6 from the graphic organizer to the paper13
Step 6: From the graphic organizer to the paper.

One day when my teacher was out, the whole class, except for me, was really bad. Whether in the classroom or in other places, my classmates acted terribly. I guess they thought that since our teacher was gone and would never find out, it would be okay to act up.

  • Expand the Topic sentence (the center box) to answer the questions:
  • Who is in the story?
  • What’s it about?
  • When did it take place?
  • Where did it take place?
  • Why did it happen?

Step 6: From the graphic organizer to the paper.

Have you ever actually seen a bunch of wild banshees? One day when my teacher was out, the whole class, except for me, was really bad. Whether in the classroom or in other places, my classmates acted terribly. I guess they thought that since our teacher was gone and would never find out, it would be okay to act up.

  • Begin the introductory paragraph with a hook. Samples of hooks can be found online.

Later on, even I was starting to lose my cool. I was raising my hand to ask questions when I had one over the assignment, but everyone else was being really disrespectful to the teacher. I could tell she was getting really frustrated because she got that same throbbing vein in her forehead that my mom gets. I can imagine how angry my mom would be if she found out I was rude to a teacher.
