Welcome to Paragraphology®
Paragraphology® is the study of writing through color-coding. The program is a multisensory, comprehensive, scaffolded approach to writing and note-taking that can be easily utilized by children, teens, college students, and adults. Students are systematically taught a formula that guides them through the process of writing a basic paragraph to a comprehensive understanding of the five-paragraph essay. Through scaffolding, repetition, and practice of reading quality examples, producing work of their own, coding and unlocking writing prompts, and dissecting expository text, students learn the writing process inside and out.
Developed in 2006 by expert faculty Bridget Barley, current Director of Middle School, Jemicy teachers utilize Paragraphology® across disciplines. Students use the color-coding method to support the writing process for science labs and note-taking in social studies classes.

The approach has been taught to other teachers, schools, and districts nationwide, and Jemicy faculty have presented the concept of Paragraphology® at conferences and workshops to teachers, parents, and professionals from around the globe.
