Transcript of Process explanation

Process Explanation - The process explanation describes the “how’s” and the “why’s” of (1)things that happen and (2)human activities. Sources: The goal of the process explanation is to
help the readers understand the steps of a process. 1.) The process explanation can begin with a brief introduction.

2.) It is best to write the process explanation in the present tense.

3.) Use a logical approach in deciding which steps to group together in sentences and in paragraphs.

4.) Transition words should be used throughout the process explanation.

5.) When explaining a “human activity” process, be sure to choose a good title or label for the person doing the activity. Some tips in Writing Process explanation: Scientists further divide NREM sleep into four separate stages. As people fall asleep, their muscles relax and their heart and breathing rates gradually decrease until they drift out of conscious awareness of the surrounding world into stage one sleep. Typically, about 15 minutes after falling asleep, people enter stage two, which can be distinguished from stage one by differences in the sleepers’ PEG patterns. While people awakened from stage one will become alert almost immediately and scarcely realize they have fallen asleep, a person disturbed during stage two will usually take several seconds to become fully awake.
Stage three—which, together with stage four, is known as deep sleep—begins about half an hour after people fall asleep. As sleepers pass through stage three to stage four, their EEG patterns change again as their brains begin to produce slow, rhythmic patterns known as delta waves. People disturbed during deep sleep have drifted so far from waking consciousness that they may take several minutes to awaken completely.
