IE3 Writing: Lesson 3
Ican't believe we're already starting our essay outlines! Time sure does fly!
We learned about the structure of the body paragraphs. Similar to the introduction, you need to use funnel introduction: organizing your ideas from general to specific.
There are four types of details you can use in your essay: (1) facts; (2) descriptions; (3) statistics; and (4) expert opinions.
Introductions: First drafts
I returned the first drafts of your introductions in class. We went through the different types of comments on your drafts: purple comments for structure/content and orange comments for grammar. You also received Correction Symbols. I will use correction symbols to give you hints about the errors you make in your writing.

The three important points to keep in mind when writing an essay are, stick to the subject, give an example, and not to use first person perspective.

I think the first point we need to remember before we write our body paragraphs is not to use first person such as I, me and my. By doing so, sentences become more general. I made this kind of mistake in my introduction, so I will keep this in mind when I write my body paragraphs. The second point is that they must be coherent to our topics. We must write sentences general to specific almost in the same way as the introduction. The third point is to think about our own opinions and express the factual grounding clearly. It is important to think what is the essence of the topic and write it in our own word. As for expressing the factual grounding clearly, we can make a more convincing argument by using examples.

I thought that the most important thing for me before wrting the body paragraph is to make sure all sentences are connected to my topic. When writing an essay, it should be very clear for everyone to understand. To make it clear all the sentences must be connected. However, it was one one thing that I could not do when writing the introduction.

One thing that I think it is important to write the body paragraph is to give good examples. If the example is difficult to understand or something that it is not general, it will become harder for the reader to understand.

The first important point I think is needed to remember before I write my body paragraph is to use the funnel organization. Just like the introduction, having the sentences go from general to specific is needed to make the paragraph more organized so that the reader can understand what you are trying to say. Using details that aren't off topic is needed in this part.

I think the the most important thing you need to remember when writing an essay is to not write in first person. It's a nice thing to have your own opinion, but when it comes to writing an essay, what the reader wants to know the most isn't your opinion. It's important to precisely write about your topic.
