IDEAS FOR TOPICS


Now let s work on the first paragraph in your body

Now let’s work on the first paragraph in your body.

1. TOPIC SENTENCE: One reason I believe this is

____________________________________________.

2. SUPPORTING DETAILS (facts, statistics, logic, personal experiences, expert statements, opinion, etc.):

  • __________________________________________

  • __________________________________________

    3. CONCLUSION (summarize, repeat, etc.):

    _____________________________________________

And now, do the same thing for the second paragraph in your body (and for the other paragraphs you have supporting your position – be sure to use your two best paragraphs first and last).

This may be the hard part because it will seem like you are arguing against yourself, but you need to give the best reasons you can think of that others may have for disagreeing with you.

  • TOPIC SENTENCE: Some people disagree with me because __________________________

    2. SECOND OR THIRD REASONS AND/OR

    EXPLANATORY DETAILS: Remember that you

    are just acknowledging their position, not

    trying to prove it.

    3. CONCLUSION: This may simply be a statement

    like, “These sound like valid reasons, but I

    disagree.”

And now it’s your turn to argue back.

  • TOPIC SENTENCE -- Something like, “While these sound like good reasons to disagree, I still believe that…”

  • REASONS YOU DISAGREE – Be specific, use supporting details.

  • CONCLUSION – Emphasize your main points.

Revising and Editing

Go back and check your facts.

Is there a better way to organize your paper?

Have another person read it. Is there anything that is unclear to him/her?

Have you included unnecessary and/or irrelevant details?

Have you used effective transitions?

Count the number of sentences in each paragraph.

Are the paragraphs varied in length?

7. Circle the first word in each sentence in your

longest paragraph.

Have you repeated the same word?

8. In your longest paragraph, count the number

of letters in your longest word.

In your shortest word.

Are the word lengths varied?

9. Take out phrases like, “I think that” and “I

believe that.” Rewrite the sentences if

necessary.

10. Check for red and green squiggly lines.

Correct your spelling and grammar.
