  11. 11. I hope you’ve learned something from our activities. Now, we start our main topic. Our lesson for the day is…
  12. 15. A descriptive paragraph has sentences that work together to present a single, clear picture (description) of a person, a place, a thing, an event, or an idea. Description is commonly used in novels, short stories, and essays. Descriptive paragraphs make pictures in the reader's mind. A good descriptive paragraph will make a vivid picture. In order to write descriptively, you must first learn to see - observe the world around you and think about what you are seeing. For Zoom, please click.
  13. 16. A descriptive paragraph has sentences that work together to present a single, clear picture (description) of a person, a place, a thing, an event, or an idea. Description is commonly used in novels, short stories, and essays. Descriptive paragraphs make pictures in the reader's mind. A good descriptive paragraph will make a vivid picture. In order to write descriptively, you must first learn to see - observe the world around you and think about what you are seeing.
  14. 17. The purpose of descriptive writing is to make our readers see, feel, and hear what we have seen, felt, and heard. Whether we are describing a person, a place, or a thing, our aim is to reveal a subject through vivid and carefully selected details. Each of the four paragraphs below responds, in its own way, to the guidelines in How to Write a Descriptive Paragraph. The writers have selected a belonging that holds special meaning to them, identified that belonging in a clear topic sentence, and then described the subject in detail while explaining its personal significance.
  15. 18. Look! Put simply, that's the watchword of this project and the motto of all good writers: pay attention to the details and show the reader what you mean. Specific details create word pictures that can make writing more interesting and easier to understand. In this project, you will practice organizing those specific details into an effective descriptive paragraph.
  16. 19. <ul><li>Guided by the steps below, you will begin by selecting one of your belongings and then drafting a list of details that describe it. Next, you will put these details into sentences and organize the sentences into a paragraph. Finally, you will revise the paragraph to make sure that it is unified and clearly organized. </li></ul><ul><li>1) Find and Explore a Topic </li></ul><ul><li>Before you can write an effective descriptive paragraph, you need to do two things: </li></ul><ul><li>find a good topic; </li></ul><ul><li>study the topic carefully (a strategy that we call probing ) </li></ul>
  17. 20. 2) Draft a Descriptive Paragraph Once you have settled on a topic for your descriptive paragraph and collected some details, you're ready to assemble those details in a rough draft that begins with a topic sentence. You will find a common model for organizing a description at Draft a Descriptive Paragraph. 3) Revise a Descriptive Paragraph Now you will revise your descriptive paragraph, concentrating on its organization. That is, you will check to see that your sentences follow a clear and logical order, each detail related to the one that came before and leading to the one that follows
  18. 21. <ul><li>These two exercises will give you practice in revising effectively: </li></ul><ul><li>Practice in Supporting a Topic Sentence with Specific Details </li></ul><ul><li>Practice in Organizing a Descriptive Paragraph </li></ul><ul><li>4) Revise, Edit, and Proofread </li></ul><ul><li>You're almost done. It's now time to invite someone else (a classmate, for example, or your instructor) to read your descriptive paragraph and suggest ways to improve it. Taking your reader's comments into consideration, revise the paragraph one last time, using as a guide this Revision Checklist for a Descriptive Paragraph. </li></ul>
  19. 22. You've just written a descriptive paragraph. The trick to making good paragraphs is to be a good observer. Practice observing - any time that you're not actually doing anything else, pay attention to the world around you. Waiting in line, travelling to a destination, sitting in a restaurant - all of these are great chances to observe!   Good descriptive writing involves showing not telling . You must know how to write a paragraph by focusing on one item and describing it. It is the job of the reader to guess the item.
  20. 23. Watson and the Shark 1.
  21. 24.               Watson and the Shark is a painting by John Singleton Copley. In the foreground of the painting, one naked man is being attacked by a huge gray shark in the cold and choppy seawater. One small overloaded rowboat is near the naked man and the frightening shark. There are nine horrified men in this rowboat. They are trying to rescue the naked man. One young man takes a long spear and wants to kill the shark. Some people are reaching for his hand, and some are throwing a rope for him to catch. In the background of the painting, under the dark and cloudy sky, there are many ships stopping in the stormy harbor. The whole painting makes people feel tension and fear.
  22. 25. Notes: This paragraph is well written in a number of ways. Firstly, the sentence structure is correct and shows compound sentence combining. Secondly, they used a number of adjectives to add life to the description. Thirdly, the description is organized from the focal point in the front of the painting to the background, just as our eyes would follow the painting. The ideas flow smoothly from one to the other because of cohesive devices such as sentence combining, pronouns, correct use of definite and indefinite articles, repetition of key words, and prepositions that direct the reader’s attention around the image. This paragraph is an excellent example of a descriptive paragraph.
  23. 26. I am forty years old, rather tall and I have blue eyes and short black hair. I wear casual clothes as I teach students in a relaxed atmosphere. I enjoy my job because I get to meet and help so many different people from all over the world. During my spare time, I like playing tennis which I play at least three times a week. I also love listening to classical music and I must admit that I spend a lot of money on buying new CDs! I live in a pretty seaside town on the Italian coast. I enjoy eating great Italian food and laughing with the likable people who live here. 2.

The tree was planted in the middle of a great round table, and towered high above their heads. It was brilliantly lighted by a multitude of little tapers; and everywhere sparkled and glittered with bright objects. There were rosy-cheeked dolls,
  28. 31. hiding behind the green leaves; and there were real watches (with movable hands, at least, and an endless capacity of being wound up) dangling from innumerable twigs; there were French-polished tables, chairs, bedsteads, wardrobes, eight-day clocks, and various other articles of domestic furniture (wonderfully made, in tin, at Wolverhampton)&quot;...
