Writing hamburger paragraphs guidesheet

Hamburger paragraphs were something I first saw ten years ago or so and is the work of the wonderful Dale Banham and the Schools History Project. Hamburger paragraphs are an analogy to help students to write effectively by comparing a burger to a strong substantiated paragraph. This is something I have found extremely effective and have used Banham’s work to make a guidesheet for my students. This is particularly effective in helping students when they have extended writing tasks – in this case controlled coursework. The guidesheet is certainly Banham’s work and I heartily recommend using his textbooks for teaching History.
