  • 3. Exemplification, p. 177-183<br />Exemplification is the first pattern of paragraph development that we will study. <br />Basically, exemplification means to support a statement by giving examples. (sometimes called “illustration”)<br />Another way to think about this type of writing is that it is a combination of showing and telling. <br />First, the writer makes a statement (telling).<br />Then, he or she gives examples that help the reader to see and understand the statement (showing). <br />
  • 4. Exemplification, p. 177-183<br />Let’s look at some examples of statements (telling) and examples (showing).<br />Turn to p. 177<br />Examples help us see for ourselves the truth of the author’s statement.<br />
  • 5. Exemplification, p. 177-183<br />Now let’s look at some examples of statements and examples in paragraph form.<br />Look at the first paragraph on the bottom of p. 177.<br />Remember that some of these examples are stronger than others.<br />
  • 6. Exemplification, p. 177-183<br />Re-read the paragraphs on your own. <br />TIP: as you read, underline the topic sentence and the specific examples. Circle the transitions.
