Dear Learner,
How are you today?
In the previous module you have already learned about decoding
meaning of unfamiliar words using context clues. In this module you
will learn about writing a composition with beginning, middle and
ending sentences.
This module will help you learn the three parts of a composition:
introduction, body and conclusion. Hence, you will also learn some tips
in writing good compositions, format, capitalization rules and different
punctuations to make your writing content clear and concise.
Rewrite the selection given below and apply what you learned on
how to write good composition.

I AM NOW A BRAVE HEART
all children have a fear of the dark I do I used to share a bedroom with my
parents
before they decided to let me have a room of my own I found the
experience very difficult alone in the dark and thinking of many
unbelievable things including ghosts was a problem I couldn’t stop myself
from imagining those creatures then there were times I had to go out at
night to get drink or some snacks in the kitchen I usually knocked at my
parents’ door to ask for company now things have changed I have grown
up prayers make me feel safe a call on god helps me sleep well I can also
make myself hot milk or chocolate in the kitchen without company turning
on all lights makes me feel alright I know I am a much better person now
and I think I have started being brave not only not only in the dark but also
with many other trials in life

• Did you find it easy rewriting the composition?
• Look at the rewritten composition. Do we have the same answer?
• Do not worry we will have more exercises to do.
Read the paragraphs below.
Let’s Study This
The Badminton Club held its culminating activity on
February 20 at one o’clock in the afternoon.
It was begun by an opening prayer. The moderators
assigned the final teams for the tournament. Team A was
already declared the champion. Teams B and C had to play for
the second and third place and Team D as the fourth placer.
The awarding of the medals followed. Some members were
awarded as the best players.
After the awarding, a get-together was held and the food
brought by the members were shared among themselves. It
was indeed a memorable one.
I AM NOW A BRAVE HEART
All children have a fear of the dark. I do. I used to share a
bedroom with my parents.
Before they decided to let me have a room of my own I found
the experience very difficult alone in the dark and thinking of many
unbelievable things including ghosts was a problem. I couldn’t stop
myself from imagining those creatures. Then there were times I had
to go out at night to get drink or some snacks in the kitchen, I usually
knocked at my parents’ door to ask for company. Now things have
changed. I have grown up. Prayers make me feel safe. A call on God
helps me sleep. Well, I can also make myself hot milk or chocolate
in the kitchen without company. Turning on all lights makes me feel
alright. I know I am a much better person now and I think I have
started being brave not only in the dark but also with many other
trials in life.

What does the first paragraph tell us? How about the second
paragraph? What does the last paragraph state?
The three parts of a composition are the introduction, body and
conclusion. The introduction gives us a preview of what the
composition is all about. The body tells us about the topic of the whole
composition. The conclusion signals the ending of the composition.
Writing an Introduction
A strong introduction captures the reader’s attention with an
interesting fact, detail, incident, or description. It gives background
information if needed. It includes a sentence expressing the main idea
of the composition. It does not include empty expressions as “In this
composition I will…”
Writing the Body
As you write the body of your composition, keep your reader in
mind. Try to make your message as clear as possible. Write complete,
varied sentences with vivid words. Use transactions to connect your
thoughts smoothly.
Writing the Conclusion
A strong concluding paragraph emphasizes the main idea without
restating it exactly. It may refer to ideas in the introduction to round
up the composition. It does not introduce a completely new idea. It
does not use such empty expressions as “I have just told you about…”
or “Now you know about…”
Here are some tips you can try in making attempts to write good
compositions in short story form.
1. When you are given a topic to write about, think of a past
experience which you can easily relate excitingly to an audience if
you were to share it orally. Write it as if it were really happening
before your audience so that your ideas will freely flow with
appropriate, precise and vivid expressions.
2. Don’t forget to have a good beginning and a good concluding
sentence for your write-up.
108
3. Very important, too, is how you write your selection. You must be
able to follow a good format and observe the mechanics of proper
capitalization and punctuation.
CAPITALIZATION RULES
1. Always begin the first word of every sentence with a capital letter.
2. Proper nouns should always begin with a capital letter. They are
particular names of persons, places or things.
3. Following are other proper nouns which should begin with a
capital letter:
a. Names of geographical sections of a country such as the North,
the South, the East, and the West, except when they indicate
compass directions
Example: The north wind, going to the East section
b. Name referring to God
Examples: Lord, Divine Mercy, Almighty
c. Names of governmental bodies, departments, and offices
Examples: Congress, Department of Health, Office of the
Registrar
d. Names of historical events, periods, and documents
Examples: Martial Law, Stone Age, Magna Carta, Battle of
Mactan, Industrial Revolution
e. Titles of books, stories, poems, movies, talks, works of art, and
musical compositions
Examples: Developing Reading Power, Pieta, Ibong Adarna
f. Titles of professions when used with a particular name
Examples: Dr. Samonte, Mayor Alonte
g. As mark of respect, the titles of high officials are capitalized
even when without names.
Examples: The Vice President is now boarding the plane.
h. Words of family relationships, such as: I saw Father at the mall.
109
Exception: It should not be capitalized when not used to
indicate respect, or used with a determiner.
Example: I saw my father at the mall.
Punctuation Rules
To make clear the meaning of what is written, proper punctuation
marks are to be used when needed. Some important rules of
punctuation are the following:
1. Use period at the end of a declarative sentence.
2. Use a period at the end of abbreviations or an initial.
Examples: Elisa M. Robles, E.M.R.
3. The comma is used to separate words or groups of words in a
series.
Example: I invited my relatives, my former teachers, my former
classmates, and my close friends.
a. It is also used to set off a short direct quotation and the parts
of a divided quotation.
Examples: “She meant to inform you,” replied Sarah.
“My point is,” said Kathleen, “you abandoned us
when we needed you most.”
b. To separate independent elements and words of direct address
Example: No, you should join us.
Lito, help me with this.
c. To set off the parts of dates, addresses, or geographical names
Examples: Our family moved to Kamias, Quezon City on April
2, 1970.
d. To separate nonrestrictive phrases and clauses from the rest of
the sentence
Example: The movement, inspired by the hero’s death, led to a
bloody revolution.
e. It is also used after the salutation in a social letter and after the
complimentary close in all letters.
Examples: Dear Ana,
Truly yours,
110
Rewrite the paragraph. Look out for misspelled words; omit
sentences that do not belong to the paragraph, etc.
Let’s Do This
Life is like riding a bicycle. There are certain rules to
remember when riding a bicycle. If you have a new bike, before you
use it on a journey, make sure the seat is adjusted to the right height
for you. In life, when you want to try something new, you have to
study it carefully in order to find out if you can do it. Then once the
seat is fixed firmly at the correct height, the handlebars should be
fixed according to the height of the seat. Mountain bike or ordinary
bike cycling is great fun. Equip yourself and check your bike to make
sure that you are safe. Attach a rearview mirror and a bell to the
handlebars and check that the bell can be heard. Stay on cycle paths.
Avoid roads used by speeding vehicles. Stay focused and alert – just
as you have to do when you journey on in life.

All you need for clay modeling is a lump of clay, some water, and
a board to work on. You will need to keep the clay quite wet while
you are modeling it. You may want to make a circus of animals
and people, or anything else you like. Make all your figures heavy,
solid, and bulky, or the pieces will break easily when they dry.
Make them appear as if they were doing something. Then bake
your models using an oven called kiln. A kiln could make them
last fairly well. They will last fairly well if you let them. Then paint
them with the type of paint called tempera.
a. This is a hard way to make clay models.
b. This is the easiest way to make clay models.
c. The first time I made clay models was odd.

The barangay had a party-for-a-cause at the
Rodriguez’s farm. It was held for the benefit of the
children’s clinic. Everyone helped. The neighbors’ tables,
chairs, and benches were used. Mother’s pork and chicken
adobo was a big hit. The men sent over the chef’s special
dishes from Aling Binay’s Restaurant in the town. Aling
Cedes brought crispy and delicious vegetable salad. The
children chose Aling Nena’s rice cakes and Cynthia’s
cookies.
A Perfect Gift
The morning of my birthday brought me a pleasant
surprise. I was awakened by the rustle of paper near my
bed. There I saw my little sister put a big box at my feet.
Getting up excitedly, I grabbed it. My fingers were all
thumbs. Finally, I succeeded in opening the package, and my
eyes grew big over a beautiful new basketball.

Whenever I gaze at the flag waving over our school,
my heart beats with joy. This symbol of independence
reminds me that I belong to a beautiful country, the

and died fighting for freedom. As it waves on high, our flag
challenges me to be noble and brave. In this way, our
country may be proud of me.

  • 1. ENGLISHENGLISHENGLISHENGLISH Marcy_cb21 6666Module 9 A DepEd-BEAM Distance Learning Program supported by the Australian Agency for International Development WRITING A COMPOSITON (BEGINNING, MIDDLE, CONCLUSION)
  • 2. 105 Dear Learner, How are you today? In the previous module you have already learned about decoding meaning of unfamiliar words using context clues. In this module you will learn about writing a composition with beginning, middle and ending sentences. This module will help you learn the three parts of a composition: introduction, body and conclusion. Hence, you will also learn some tips in writing good compositions, format, capitalization rules and different punctuations to make your writing content clear and concise. Rewrite the selection given below and apply what you learned on how to write good composition. To the Learner Let’s Try This Let’s Learn This I AM NOW A BRAVE HEART all children have a fear of the dark I do I used to share a bedroom with my parents before they decided to let me have a room of my own I found the experience very difficult alone in the dark and thinking of many unbelievable things including ghosts was a problem I couldn’t stop myself from imagining those creatures then there were times I had to go out at night to get drink or some snacks in the kitchen I usually knocked at my parents’ door to ask for company now things have changed I have grown up prayers make me feel safe a call on god helps me sleep well I can also make myself hot milk or chocolate in the kitchen without company turning on all lights makes me feel alright I know I am a much better person now and I think I have started being brave not only not only in the dark but also with many other trials in life
  • 3. 106 • Did you find it easy rewriting the composition? • Look at the rewritten composition. Do we have the same answer? • Do not worry we will have more exercises to do. Read the paragraphs below. Let’s Study This The Badminton Club held its culminating activity on February 20 at one o’clock in the afternoon. It was begun by an opening prayer. The moderators assigned the final teams for the tournament. Team A was already declared the champion. Teams B and C had to play for the second and third place and Team D as the fourth placer. The awarding of the medals followed. Some members were awarded as the best players. After the awarding, a get-together was held and the food brought by the members were shared among themselves. It was indeed a memorable one. I AM NOW A BRAVE HEART All children have a fear of the dark. I do. I used to share a bedroom with my parents. Before they decided to let me have a room of my own I found the experience very difficult alone in the dark and thinking of many unbelievable things including ghosts was a problem. I couldn’t stop myself from imagining those creatures. Then there were times I had to go out at night to get drink or some snacks in the kitchen, I usually knocked at my parents’ door to ask for company. Now things have changed. I have grown up. Prayers make me feel safe. A call on God helps me sleep. Well, I can also make myself hot milk or chocolate in the kitchen without company. Turning on all lights makes me feel alright. I know I am a much better person now and I think I have started being brave not only in the dark but also with many other trials in life.
  • 4. 107 What does the first paragraph tell us? How about the second paragraph? What does the last paragraph state? The three parts of a composition are the introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction gives us a preview of what the composition is all about. The body tells us about the topic of the whole composition. The conclusion signals the ending of the composition. Writing an Introduction A strong introduction captures the reader’s attention with an interesting fact, detail, incident, or description. It gives background information if needed. It includes a sentence expressing the main idea of the composition. It does not include empty expressions as “In this composition I will…” Writing the Body As you write the body of your composition, keep your reader in mind. Try to make your message as clear as possible. Write complete, varied sentences with vivid words. Use transactions to connect your thoughts smoothly. Writing the Conclusion A strong concluding paragraph emphasizes the main idea without restating it exactly. It may refer to ideas in the introduction to round up the composition. It does not introduce a completely new idea. It does not use such empty expressions as “I have just told you about…” or “Now you know about…” Here are some tips you can try in making attempts to write good compositions in short story form. 1. When you are given a topic to write about, think of a past experience which you can easily relate excitingly to an audience if you were to share it orally. Write it as if it were really happening before your audience so that your ideas will freely flow with appropriate, precise and vivid expressions. 2. Don’t forget to have a good beginning and a good concluding sentence for your write-up.
  • 5. 108 3. Very important, too, is how you write your selection. You must be able to follow a good format and observe the mechanics of proper capitalization and punctuation. CAPITALIZATION RULES 1. Always begin the first word of every sentence with a capital letter. 2. Proper nouns should always begin with a capital letter. They are particular names of persons, places or things. 3. Following are other proper nouns which should begin with a capital letter: a. Names of geographical sections of a country such as the North, the South, the East, and the West, except when they indicate compass directions Example: The north wind, going to the East section b. Name referring to God Examples: Lord, Divine Mercy, Almighty c. Names of governmental bodies, departments, and offices Examples: Congress, Department of Health, Office of the Registrar d. Names of historical events, periods, and documents Examples: Martial Law, Stone Age, Magna Carta, Battle of Mactan, Industrial Revolution e. Titles of books, stories, poems, movies, talks, works of art, and musical compositions Examples: Developing Reading Power, Pieta, Ibong Adarna f. Titles of professions when used with a particular name Examples: Dr. Samonte, Mayor Alonte g. As mark of respect, the titles of high officials are capitalized even when without names. Examples: The Vice President is now boarding the plane. h. Words of family relationships, such as: I saw Father at the mall.
  • 6. 109 Exception: It should not be capitalized when not used to indicate respect, or used with a determiner. Example: I saw my father at the mall. Punctuation Rules To make clear the meaning of what is written, proper punctuation marks are to be used when needed. Some important rules of punctuation are the following: 1. Use period at the end of a declarative sentence. 2. Use a period at the end of abbreviations or an initial. Examples: Elisa M. Robles, E.M.R. 3. The comma is used to separate words or groups of words in a series. Example: I invited my relatives, my former teachers, my former classmates, and my close friends. a. It is also used to set off a short direct quotation and the parts of a divided quotation. Examples: “She meant to inform you,” replied Sarah. “My point is,” said Kathleen, “you abandoned us when we needed you most.” b. To separate independent elements and words of direct address Example: No, you should join us. Lito, help me with this. c. To set off the parts of dates, addresses, or geographical names Examples: Our family moved to Kamias, Quezon City on April 2, 1970. d. To separate nonrestrictive phrases and clauses from the rest of the sentence Example: The movement, inspired by the hero’s death, led to a bloody revolution. e. It is also used after the salutation in a social letter and after the complimentary close in all letters. Examples: Dear Ana, Truly yours,
  • 7. 110 Rewrite the paragraph. Look out for misspelled words; omit sentences that do not belong to the paragraph, etc. Let’s Do This Life is like riding a bicycle. There are certain rules to remember when riding a bicycle. If you have a new bike, before you use it on a journey, make sure the seat is adjusted to the right height for you. In life, when you want to try something new, you have to study it carefully in order to find out if you can do it. Then once the seat is fixed firmly at the correct height, the handlebars should be fixed according to the height of the seat. Mountain bike or ordinary bike cycling is great fun. Equip yourself and check your bike to make sure that you are safe. Attach a rearview mirror and a bell to the handlebars and check that the bell can be heard. Stay on cycle paths. Avoid roads used by speeding vehicles. Stay focused and alert – just as you have to do when you journey on in life.
