By the end of this engaging process, your students will transform those redundant stale sentences into deliciously robust paragraphs and essays. This interactive session will put you in the student seat as we channel our students' inner writing styles and voices to create our own exquisite paragraph.

It prepares students for higher-level analysis and improves their comprehension of the topic by drawing their attention to important details.
