Candy Wrapper Model
The hook/introduction should hook the reader and
state your point-like the wrapper of the piece of
candy.
The body should have reasons and support for the
reader to savor–like savoring the sweet taste of the
candy.
The conclusion should restate your point and leave
the audience with something to remember-like the
wrapper that’s left after eating the candy.
