essay on a good teacher - YouTube
Hey Ray, the five paragraph structure teaches you to use evidence to back up your arguments. Something you fail to do in your essay.
You make a bunch of specious claims and then never support them.
Instead we get a rambly mess of an argument that doesn't really go anywhere. The biggest bone I have to pick with you is the old saw you repeat that I keep hearing from curriculum faddists- that this structure is never used in "real life."
This is a bogus argument due to the fact that we do not teach all writing forms to be just used in the work place (this is what you mean by real life- right?) There is a value in learning a writing technique that is used to train good mental habits- such as supporting information with evidence.
Mostly I hate this real life argument because we do use it out side of school. I used to write for newspapers and magazines and used it (in a mutated form) all of the time. Turn to any newspaper page of any good newspaper and you will see an article written with an introduction/ a body/ and conclusion. This method is used in debates and in writing college acceptance essays to name a few formats.
To put down the five paragraph work horse is a fad. Don’t eliminate it, just add it to your arsenal of writing. Students need to know how to structure thoughts and this is one very useful method.
One last point, not teaching this to students sets kids up for failure in college, where - like it or not- they are expected to know this formula.
