Transcript of Writing a paragraph

Unity in paragraph writing
Exercise
Horror films have made an impressive comeback with young movie goers in the 1990s. Sequels to new films like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer have already hit the screens with much success, headlined with youthful stars from popular television shows. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and Jennifer Love Hewitt have all parlayed their TV celebrity into Scream Queen status. Their success on television has clearly helped them crossover into film. Hollywood is also taking advantage of the resurgence of interest by remaking several old horror films as well. In 1998, a remake of Psycho introduced a new generation to the amazing film capabilities of Alfred Hitchcock. Another sequel causing excitement is George Lucas' "prequel" to the Star Wars saga."

Writing a Paragraph
Unity and Coherence
The Oxford Dictionary of English
1. One paragraph = one idea.
2. Every supporting sentence must directly explain or prove the main idea.
It has been said that history repeats itself. Who first said this quote is not important. Although circumstances may change, and they frequently do, and the cast of characters will differ, human response to crisis situations remains consistent over time. The lessons gained from past events should affect present decisions. People rarely change their behaviour based upon past experience. Sometimes they do, but not often do they change their actions. Indeed, it sometimes seems as if people are willing to challenge the influence of the past when they repeat mistakes or misjudgments. Why people would want to challenge the influence of the past remains unknown.
