    • SAMPLE PARAGRAPH
      • TOPIC: Lotteries should be banned.
      • 1- First choose a sentence structure for the topic sentence.
    • My topic sentence is ready:
      • I am for the idea that lotteries should be banned.
      • (First I think about whether I agree or disagree with the topic)
    • Remember other slide page for sentence structures for the supporting sentences
    • ‘ Lotteries should be banned.’
      • Firstly,…
      • In addition,…

    • SUPPORTING DETAILS
      • … and we add our topic sentence to the supporting sentences:
      • ‘ I am for the idea that lotteries should be banned.’
    •  
    •  
    • Now we add our concluding sentence…
      • … To sum up, for these reasons, I believe that banning lotteries is a good idea.
      • LET’S COMBINE THEM ALL…
    • TOPIC: ‘Lotteries should be banned.’
      • I am for the idea that lotteries should be banned. Firstly, in my opinion, lotteries are a waste of money. Every time we buy a lottery ticket, we have less money to buy things we need such as food or medicine. In addition, I think playing the lottery is very addictive. When we buy a lottery ticket, but do not win, we may want to buy more and more tickets. Finally, in my point of view, lotteries are not really a good chance to make money. We cannot use our skills or abilities to win. To sum up, for these reasons, I believe that banning lotteries is a good idea.
