Another phrase that pays!

We've been talking a lot lately about stating our purpose in our writing and how important it is that we identify this for our reader. To set the boys and girls on the write path for future experiences with expository writing or any form of non-fiction writing, we use the phrase: Today I'm going to tell you all about... (or some variation of this).
As students get older, they'll learn about stating their thesis in the opening paragraph of their writing, but this statement lays the foundation.
