Summary of the term
What is a paragraph?
The three parts of a paragraph
Unity
Coherence
.........................................................................................I always have tea in the morning for breakfast. I make a pot of tea and then I drink it all myself. Sometimes I have another pot before lunch. At four o’clock, I make a cup of mint tea. Mint tea is good for waking up and studying.
..............................................................................................................When you travel to Europe, you can visit many different countries, such as England, Spain, Germany, and Greece. Many different languages are spoken in Europe, and the cultures of the countries are all unique. Also, the weather in Europe varies a lot. Countries in the north are very cold, and you can go skiing. In the south, there are beautiful beaches, and these are popular places for vacations. As you can see, Europe is a very interesting place with different kinds of people and many possibilities.
..............................................................................................................Her name is Mrs. Graham, and she not only teaches music in my school, but she is also a friend to all of her students. In class, she teaches us to love music, and she introduces us to different songs and styles of music. She taught me to play the piano and violin, and I am sure that I will enjoy playing these instruments for the rest of my life. Mrs. Graham often tells interesting stories in class, and she always helps us or gives us advice when we have problems. Mrs. Graham is more than just a music teacher, she is like a star in the sky.
Writing is not only a way to communicate, it is a tool for expressing your thoughts and exploring new ideas. Ever since I was young, I have kept a diary. I wrote my thoughts in my diary every day. Now that I am older, I still enjoy writing, and I often write short stories. Sometimes I still like to write down my thoughts at the end of the day. It helps me understand myself better, and it helps me see my life more clearly. ..................................................................................................
For people around the world, the Red Cross is often the difference between life and death. For several years, the Red Cross has been helping people who are sick, victims of wars, and victims of natural disasters. The Red Cross does not take sides, but rather helps anyone who needs help. After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Red Cross worked hard and saved many lives. Also, after Japan was hit by a tsunami in 2011, the Red Cross helped the people there get through this difficult time. ...........................................................
................................................................................................................
My nephews Jason and Levi are like a ray of sunshine in my cloudy life. Every time I see them, they make me smile, even if I’m in a bad mood. Although they are much younger than me, I enjoy talking to them and sharing secrets with them. We like to go swimming and hiking as well as playing basketball sometimes. My nephews look up to me, so I try to behave well and give them a good example. I am glad my nephews live near me, and I am excited to watch them grow up. ..........................................................................................................
(1) As you use your calendar to manage your time, think about how long certain activities will take. (2) A common mistake is to underestimate the time needed to do something, even something simple. (3) For example, when you are planning the time needed to get cash from the cash machine, remember that there may be a line of people. (4) Last week in line I met a woman I went to high school with, so we chatted. (5) It turns out she has two children just the same age as mine. (6) When you are estimating time for a more complex activity, such as reading a chapter in a textbook, block out more time than you think you will need. (7) If you finish in less time than you have allotted, so much the better. (8) One should allow for interruptions because it is better to allow too much time than too little.
(1) Savannah, Georgia, is an interesting city to visit. (2) Atlanta, Georgia, also attracts many visitors.

Chronological order (a narrative paragraph)
In the relatively short span of sixty years, there has been an incredible evolution in the size and capabilities of computer. Today, computer chips smaller than the tip of your fingernail have the same capabilities as the room-sized machines of years ago. The first computer were developed around 1945. They were so large that they required special air-conditioned rooms. About twenty years later, in the 1960s, desk-sized computers were developed. This represented a gigantic advance. Before the end of that same decade, however, a third generation of computer,which used simple integrated circuits and which were even smaller and faster, had appeared. In 1971, the first microprocessor, less than one square centimeter in size, was developed. Today modern microprocessors contain as many as 10 million microprocessors doubles every eighteen months.

Comparison/contrast
If you are planning to buy a personal computer, you should know some of the basic similarities and differences between PCs and Macs. First of all, both PCs and Macs are composed of the same elements: a CPU, the electronic circuitry to run the computer; memory for storing information; input devices such as a keyboard or mouse for putting information into the computer; and output devices such as a monitor, printer, and audio speakers for conveying information. They also have the same uses: PCs are used to communicate on computer networks, to write (with the help of word processing and desktop publishing software), to track finances, and to play games. Macs are likewise used to communicate, write, calculate, and entertain.
Comparison/contrast
There are some differences, however. Whereas you will find more PCs in business offices, you will find more Macs in classrooms. Although Macs are the computers of choice of people who do a lot of art and graphic design in their work, PCs seem to be the choice of people who do a lot of “number crunching”. Finally, there is a difference in the availability of software, vendors, and service for the two computers. In general, there is a lot of PC-compatible software, but relatively little Mac software. Furthermore, for a Mac, you must purchase your machine and get service from a Macintosh-authorized dealer, whereas many different computer stores sell and service PCs.
