I can'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.
