Paragraph Writing Unit 5
Transcript of Paragraph Writing Unit 5
Now, it's time for you to edit your work
Is it relevant to the topic?
Do you explain your topic clearly by:
Adding explanation, or
Cross out sentences that are INCOHERENT
A good paragraph consists of 3 major parts
1. A TOPIC SENTENCE - contains the main idea of the paragraph
2. SUPPORTING SENTENCES - explains, develops, gives examples and/or details about the main idea
[These sentences develop the ideas as they progress]
3. A CONCLUDING SENTENCE - restates the topic sentence, summarize the paragraph, makes a prediction, gives suggestions
Even though a concluding sentence conveys the same message as the topic sentence, these two sentences must NOT be identical.
WRITE 2 (TWO) DIFFERENT SENTENCES THAT CONVEY SIMILAR IDEA
Brainstorming - Freewriting
After your work is complete, hand it over to your classmate for peer reviewing
Pick a topic of your choice - what topic do you want to write about?
Write incessantly - whatever comes to your mind
Don't worry about grammar, spelling - you'll have plenty of time to correct them.
ONCE YOU ARE DONE WRITING, GIVE YOUR PARAGRAPH
AND FOLLOW CHECKLIST ON PAGE 41
Peer reviewing helps refine the writing by
