Silverbirch Paragraph Model "SEEC":

Example: Would you vote for Wonder if it was in the Silverbirch Fiction competition?

S - Start

E - Explain x3

E - Example x3

C - Conclusion

     If Wonder was in the Silverbirch fiction contest, I would definitely vote for it. The plot has many humorous and tragic events that make the story interesting. it was really sad when Auggie's best friend, Jack Will, talked meanly about him behind his back at Halloween. Halloween WAS his favourite time of year. However, it was really funny when Auggie, Jack Will, and Summer would make jokes and burp at lunch. I really like Auggie the main character. He is very sweet and heroic. However, Auggie is judged by his looks. His friend Summer, doesn't judge him and Jack Will learns not to. There are big changes in the story. By the end, Auggie's sister, Via, is proud to show Auggie to her new friends. Also the ending is heart-warming when students at Auggie's school defend him and he wins an award. I recommend this book to anyone, especially people with low confidence and disabilities. 

***Notice the indented paragraph…that is how we know a new paragraph started.

***Notice the very clear start (topic sentence) which uses the words of the question/task.

***Notice the use of reading words to describe and explain.

***Notice the very specific names, events and quotes from the text (story).

***Remember to include a last concluding sentence which clearly states what you want the reader to do, feel or think about your paragraph information.

*** should organize your ideas in a mind map/brainstorm, write your paragraph and THEN edit.  By separating your work it will be easier, take less time and you will get better results.
