sure that I used keywords so that I would be able to transition from onesentence to the next. I also used complete sentences so I would be able tomove the sentences directly form the information sheet right into the paragraph. After the think sheet was completed, I wrote my paragraph bymoving the sentences from the think sheet right to the regular paper.12. Test the students on the steps. Now, we will test you to see how manysteps you are able to remember. Take out a sheet of paper and try to writethe steps down that you will need to take when writing a “How to” paragraph. Do your best with this. If you forget a step or two today that isalright. We will be going over these steps some more and by the time weare done with learning the “How to” paragraph, you will know all thesteps you need to take.4.
: At the close of the lesson, students will be orally examined on thesteps of a How to paragraph and then they will be asked to write the steps downon paper and hand it in. This will help determine whether the students haveunderstood the components of a “How to” paragraph or if they need moremodeling before we begin the guided practice.5.
: You all did an excellent job today. Our goal was learning the criticalcomponents that make up a “How to” paragraph and based on your feedback, weall seem to understand the process.

: Overheads that will be used so the process of writing a “How to” paragraph can be modeled for the student (Forms 1-6).7.
Problems that might be encountered
: Students may not be able to understandthe components right away because this will be a new paragraph format for them.To overcome their lack of knowledge, there will be a great deal of repetition of the steps to help them retain the information. Students also might try to use a process that will be too complicated for them to be able to write a good “How to” paragraph. They will be instructed that at first they want to choose a topic thatwill be easy to explain.
