Writing Paragraphs on Command

Today we wrote paragraphs about the purpose of studying geography. Then we picked our best sentence and rewrote the paragraph based upon that sentence. Finally, we switched papers and wrote new paragraphs based on the ideas of the other person.

Remember, besides poetry nearly all written work is done in paragraphs. It does not matter if we can write a sentence. What matters is if we can take those sentences, put them together and write good, effective paragraphs. Each paragraph should be able to stand on its own.

Homework:

None today. However, make sure that you bring your folders, notebooks, and extra paper to class everyday.
