The lessons begin with identifying information in a single-topic paragraph. They expand to identifying and writing ideas that belong in multiple paragraphs.
Further exercises include picking out information that does not keep to the main idea of a given paragraph, organizing topics in logical order, and writing original, two- and three-paragraph stories about suggested topics.
Plentiful practice reinforces comprehension and mastery of this important writing skill, which will lead students to creating organized and meaningful compositions. Clever illustrations and high-interest subject matter add to the effectiveness of this comprehensive teaching aid.
