    Love this resource! It would be great if this resource could be downloaded in an editable version so that the example paragraph could be changed to meet the needs of my students 🙂

    Love these posters, thank you!
    The page that explains it doesn’t seem to match up though- The poster has explain/evidence as 2 and evaluate as 3 & the other page has 2 as explain and 3 as evidence. I usually teach E- Example then E- Explain. Is there any chance of editing the poster for different versions?

      Hi Alex,

      I have fixed the inconsistency on these posters. I did some research and there are two schools of thought regarding the PEEL paragraph structure method. This resource is a particular one, the way you are teaching yours is another equally valid one. If you would like us to create a resource which reflects your method, please fill in a Resource Request for here:


      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
