    1. MEL-Con Refined

    2. Remember: the purpose of the main idea sentence is to tell your reader what the focus of your essay will be • There should be one central idea related to the prompt topic or question that you are trying to explain throughout your MEL-Con paragraph Main Idea

    3. Make sure you answer the prompt question • Write a clear and complete sentence with the appropriate word choice Main Idea

    4. “In his quote, the author of Siddhartha meant that people search for things that actually may not be there.” “Herman Hesse meant in his quote that people look too hard for what they are looking forward to, yet they can’t always find it.” Student Examples

    5. THESE MAIN IDEA SENTENCES NEED IMPROVEMENT • “What the author meant when he said what he said was many different things, but I got one thing out of it.” • “I think Herman Hesse meant by his quote that you look for things, but you don’t look back.” Student Examples

    6. Remember: the purpose of your evidence sentence is to refer to a specific example that supports your main idea • You need to use a real life example • DO NOT USE AN OPINION Evidence

    7. “For example, at one point I didn’t want to go to school anymore because my grades weren’t what I wanted them to be” Student Examples

    8. THESE EVIDENCE SENTENCES NEED IMPROVEMENT • “People seek many things that don’t come to pass.” • “If you are looking for something very important, sometimes you don’t question how to find it.” Student Examples

    9. Remember: the purpose of the first link sentence is to elaborate on the evidence • Explain the real life situation or fact thoroughly Links

    10. “I was stressing so much over my grades that I wasn’t getting anything done, and I wanted to give up, which wasn’t going to help me get good grades.” Student Examples

    11. Remember: the purpose of the second link sentence is to explain how your evidence proves that your main idea is plausible • BEFORE YOU WRITE THIS SENTENCE, ALWAYS REMIND YOURSELF WHAT YOUR MAIN IDEA IS Links

    12. “All I had to do was just go to school and stop stressing over my grades, so I could complete my assignments with a clear mind, so I could do my best. It worked and that’s how I got to where I am now – passing and happy.” Student Examples

    13. THESE LINK SENTENCES NEED IMPROVEMENT • Those things that people seek are not going to come to pass. That is the only reason why people seek too much. Student Examples

    14. Remember: the purpose of a conclusion sentence is to make a final statement that summarizes why you believe your main idea • That’s called a “Wrap Up” Conclusion

    15. “To conclude, I believe I was looking too hard for something and that’s why I couldn’t find it, which is what Herman Hesse meant in his quote.” Student Examples

    16. THESE CONCLUSION SENTENCES NEED IMPROVEMENT • “To conclude, Herman Hesse mean that you seek too much and that’s not the only way to find something.” • “That is the only reason why, you seek too much.” Student Examples
