  1. Lesson 29b Remove Irrelevant Details • Today we will eliminate unimportant sentences from paragraphs to improve their unity. • Irrelevant detail = an unimportant fact that does not support the main idea of a paragraph and should therefore be taken out.

  2. Which sentence in this paragraph does not support the main idea? My neighbor Wanda is the craziest lady in town. She only comes out at night to look in people’s windows. Newspapers from decades ago fill her living room to the ceiling. Loud singing noises can be heard from her house every morning. My other neighbor Jake thinks she’s weird. A very strange smell is coming out of her garage. Little kids fear her.

  4. Which sentence in this paragraph does not support the main idea? • Disneyland is the greatest theme park in Southern California.

  6. Which sentence in this paragraph does not support the main idea? • Cats make better pets than dogs. Not only are cats quieter and less messy, but they also require far less maintenance. While dogs need constant attention and upkeep, cats, on the other hand, are independent and can take care of themselves. Russian Fighting Hamsters also make good pets. Both cats and dogs have their pros and cons, but the cat comes out on top for easiest pet care ever.

Just look to the Lakers for the most outstanding team in the entire NBA.
