Power writing

  1. 1. Power Writing within the Five Paragraph Theme<br />
  2. 2. http://phipportielden.com/soihc?e=39pIMUn1SIYMp1&m=88124016&l=0<br />
  3. 3. The Five Paragraph Theme has this distinctive shape.<br />
  4. 4. The introduction has zero power sentences leading to a thesis statement. Therefore the shape starts broadly and narrows to a first power sentence, your thesis.<br />ZERO SENTENCES CARRY NO MEANING. THERE CAN BE MANY OF THEM IN AN ESSAY BUT THEY ARE CONFINED TO THE BEGINNING AND ENDING OF AN ESSAY.<br />FIRST POWER SENTENCES CONTROL THE ENTIRE ESSAY. THERE ARE TWO OF THESE – ONE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRST PARAGRAPH AND THE SECOND AT THE TOP OF THE LAST PARAGRAPH..<br />EACH STATES THE THESIS, WITH SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WORDING.<br />
  5. 5. Body paragraphs start with a power two sentence that gives a detail for the thesis.<br />Body paragraphs are made of power two, three , four, etc. sentences. Although each body paragraph can have only one power two sentence, they can have numerous power three, four, etch sentences.<br />
  6. 6. Each body paragraph will form a number pattern<br />The pattern will always start with 2. Then the patterns will vary. One paragraph may be a 2-3-3-4-3-4.<br />Another may be 2-3-3-3-3-3.<br />A third may be 2-3-4-4-4-4.<br />The patterns will be determined by the details in the paragraph. A three power sentence tells a detail about a two power sentence. A four power sentence tells a detail about a three power sentence, and so on.<br />
  7. 7. Power Writing keeps your five paragraph theme orderly and logical<br />
  8. 8. Power Writing in Five Paragraphs – Keep your numbers in order<br />POWER WRITING<br />
