I use an acronym for write a paragraph. I teach middle school so we use TBDEE- topic sentence, background info, document introduction, evidence, explain. Many of my students return and say how much this has helped them in HS take the regents.

This is changing a bit for us in NY because of the new Regents framework, but it is all about annotating and connecting documents to one another. Then, for the essay I always teach my students to tell a story and use the documents to support that story. Otherwise, the essays students write become too reliant on the documents, lack analysis, and lack outside information.
