A 5 paragraph essay rubric would have an introduction with the essay statement or argument. The statement would form the most important sentence that leads readers into the essay with clear explanation of what the essay is about and what is to follow in the remaining four paragraphs. The introduction would further explain how readers would be informed about the topic. For example, the rubric may ask students to write about their selection into the school soccer team. It may ask students to explain further what they did to get selected and how the experience made them better players. The essay statement can be drafted as “How I finally got selected to my school soccer team and met with success on the field.” The introduction would then lead readers into a brief explanation of when it all started and the current status. Arguments that support the statement would follow in the body of the essay.
