A paragraph focuses on one idea. A topic sentence, detail sentences, and a closing sentence are the main elements of a good paragraph. Each one forms a different "piece" of the hamburger. The colorful vocabulary and transitions add interest and ease for the reader.  


The hamburger organizer:
- helps students organize their ideas into a cohesive paragraph around an idea.
- helps highlight the structure of a paragraph in a visual format.
- demonstrates how less critical elements can still have impact and improve overall interest and enjoyment.
