Welcome to Level II: Paragraph Types

Assignment Due:    00/00/0000


Introduction:  Level II of the Just-Right (TM) Writing series will teach you how to

  • decide what to write,

  • how to write it, and

  • when to know it's good enough to submit to an instructor or parent.   


Writing paragraphs may seem difficult, but when you know the plan, it's easy to

  • brainstorm and organize your thoughts,

  • construct a good rough draft,

  • revise and edit to improve your writing, and

  • submit an assignment you can be proud of!


The paragraph types we will explore are:  summary, reasons & examples, compare & contrastcause & effect, descriptive, classification, and persuasive.

The Details: You will learn a plan called the Writing Process, which will not only help you write great paragraphs, but it will help you organize your thoughts for any kind of project you have to complete.  It's really more of a "thinking process." For example, this plan will show you how to brainstorm and organize your thoughts using great visuals such as graphic organizers and writing scaffolds.  These take the mystery out of knowing what-kind and how-much you need to write.  In addition, the writing scaffold will help you automatically construct a good rough draft that is easy to revise and edit.  You will learn what makes writing strong by applying six traits that all good writers use.  Finally, you will learn how to get feedback from your parents, peers, and your instructor that will help your writing be the best it can be!


Conclusion:  We know writing is challenging for you, so rest assured we will walk with you step-by-step.  If you practice the material presented, we feel certain you will see that writing paragraphs is not rocket-science, and that if you can have a conversation, you CAN write!
