parallel structure
Parallel Structure
  • Parallel Structure: using the same pattern of words when creating a list. (I like hiking, swimming, and to fish = not parallel)

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are successful in their relationship due to their shared passion in music, their decision to not publicly discuss their relationship, and daughter Blue Ivy.

Due to…their shared passion

Due to…their decision

Due to…daughter (doesn’t fit the pattern)

body paragraph expectations
Body Paragraph Expectations
  • Topic sentence which states the reason you will focus on in that paragraph.
  • 2-3 sentences of evidence of that reason, based on your research, that includes a blended quote.
  • 3 sentences of analysis to back up your evidence. Think “big picture” here.
  • Concluding sentence to wrap everything up.
body paragraph example
Body Paragraph Example

Though this relationship has had many struggles over the years, the biggest reason that Kermit and Piggy were unsuccessful as a couple is their difference in species. In 2011 Miss Piggy and Kermit appeared on the Larry King Show and Piggy made a comment “about the struggle of coming out to [her] fellow pig friends about loving Kermit” (Ford). There is a lot of shame in both the frog and swine communities about this relationship due to the fact that these two are different kinds of animals. Frogs and pigs live in different habitats, eat different kinds of food, and have different life spans. When couples are not able to connect in even the most basic of ways, the relationship is doomed from the start. There has to be some common ground for a relationship to truly thrive. If these two can’t even relate to one another on the very trait that defines them, they will not be able to make compromises on smaller issues either.

mla format
MLA Format
  • Heading, Page numbers, double spacing, etc.
  • Works Cited Page – hanging indent, alphabetical, no bullets/numbering, double spaced, on a separate page
  • In Text Citations: First word of the bibliography at the end of the sentence that contains the quote.

Example: In 2011 Miss Piggy and Kermit appeared on the Larry King Show and Piggy made a comment “about the struggle of coming out to [her] fellow pig friends about loving Kermit” (Ford).

titles
Titles
  • Title needs to be creative
  • I should know just from your title who your couple is and whether they succeeded or failed
  • Use this pattern for a winning title…

Something Catchy:the names of your couple and a hint to their success or failure

Examples:

Bacon and Frog Legs: The Doomed Romance of Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog

He Liked It so He Put a Ring on It: TheModern Fairy Tale of Jay-Z and Beyoncé
