Wow! We were sure busy in today's lesson. We had a lot to cover, but we got through everything.
We had a review of how to organize your ideas in your body paragraphs. Once again, you will need to use funnel organization. This means that information is arranged in this way:
a. general --> topic sentence with subtopic
b. less general --> supporting ideas
c. specific --> details
We also reviewed the different types of details that you can use in your body paragraph:
a. expert opinions
Keep in mind that descriptions and facts over overlap with each other. Many writers often use facts in their descriptions.
We also looked at how to prepare an outline. For your outlines, you need to include:
a. Topic sentences (in sentence-form)
b: supporting ideas (two for each body paragraph)
c. details (2 details for each supporting idea).
Remember that you can use note-form for your supporting ideas and details. You don't have to use sentence-form.
For your outlines, you need to download the "Outline Template" from the "Lesson Materials" section on the website.
