Connection Between Paragraph and Essay

  1. 1. Connection Between Paragraphs and Essays A paragraph is like a simple log cabin. An essay is like a huge, elaborate, detailed mansion.
  2. 2. Paragraph A paragraph is a group of sentences that deal with one idea or topic. A paragraph begins with a topic sentence and includes several supporting sentences in the middle or body of the paragraph and ends with a concluding sentence. Length=7-11 sentences. It is like a one room rustic cabin.
  3. 3. Drafting a Paragraph American Idol Auditions at Hollywood Studios To audition for the American Idol Experience at Disney Hollywood studios, there are four steps that you will have to go through in order to become a contestant on the show. In the first round of the American Idol, you will go before a Disney cast director and sing a cappella. If they like what they have heard, you will move on to round two. In round two, you will select a song and sing it to a producer. If you impress the producer, you move on to the next step, which is to sing to a live audience. The live audiences of the hourly shows each choose a winner who will get to sing in the final show of the day. The winner of the final show gets a dream ticket, which reserves the winner a chance to sing at a regional audition for the real American Idol show. (Length = 7 sentences)
  4. 4. Essay An essaybegins with an introductory paragraph and ends with a concluding paragraph. Between the opening and concluding paragraphs are the body paragraphs. Each body paragraph supports the topic with specific main sentences and supporting sentences. It is like an elaborate log home with many rooms and decorative details.
  5. 5. Organizing Your Ideas Outlining • An outline can help you organize your ideas into an essay. • In an outline, you do not need to use complete sentences, just jot down one or two words to help you organize your ideas. • Each body paragraph begins with a main idea that is related to the topic. Underneath the main idea are two or three supporting details that directly relate to the main idea of that paragraph. Each of the body paragraphs works together to support the topic of the essay.
  6. 6. Blank Outline for an Essay I. Topic: Introductory paragraph II. Body paragraph one (step one of the process) A. B. C. III. Body paragraph two (step two of the process) A. B. C. IV.

Conclusion - An opportunity to audition for the real show Each Roman numeral is a new paragraph in the essay.
  8. 8. Introduction The first paragraph of an essay is called the introduction. The first sentence of an introduction grabs the reader’s attention and introduces the topic of the essay. You can grab the reader’s attention by sharing a comparison, telling a related story, providing a definition, question or opinion statement. Never begin an introduction with a statement that begins with, “In this essay I am going to write about….” The main idea and purpose of the essay should be clear to the reader from the information presented in the introductory paragraph. Length is between 3-5 sentences.
  9. 9. Example Introduction Many young children grow up watching American Idol and dream of singing on the big stage. They may not realize how much effort goes into actually making it onto the show. When you audition for American Idol at Disney World, there are four steps that you have to go through in order to become a contestant. For some, their dreams will come true, while for others their dreams shatter way before they get the dream ticket to make it to the final rounds of auditioning.
  10. 10. Body Paragraphs An essay will have anywhere between one-three (1-3) body paragraphs. Occasionally an essay may have additional body paragraphs. Each body paragraph focuses on one main supporting detail related to your topic. When you are ready to discuss a new point related to your topic, you will move to a new body paragraph. The purposeof the body paragraph is to explain with details, provide related evidence, discuss some point, or illustrate your thoughts, findings or analysis on your topic. All of your body paragraphs work with each other to fully support the topic of your essay.
  11. 11. Example Body Paragraph One The initial audition is an intimidating first step in the process of trying to get a spot on the Idol stage. Before you even go through the auditioning process you have to prove that you are 14 years old. Without that proof, they will not allow you to go any further in the competition. After you pass the age screening, you can sign up online or sign up once you get to the audition. At the initial audition, you will sing your song in front of a Disney cast director who will decide if they like what they hear enough to move you on to the next round where you will meet and sing for a producer.
  12. 12. Example Body Paragraph Two If you are lucky enough to make it through to round two, you will be paired with a producer. Then, you will be asked to select a song from a list that includes various types of music. Choosing a song can be very intense since you will need to be able to sing it well on the spot. Once the song is chosen, you will sing along with a pre-recorded track. If you impress the producer, you will move on to the next step, which is the preliminary show. This show takes place in a theater that seats 1,000 people and a stage that looks like the American Idol stage that everyone sees on TV. The preliminary shows are shot each day in front of a live audience. Contestants sing their songs in front of the audience and the audience votes on their favorite singers. Those votes determine who gets to move on to the final show.
  13. 13. Example Body Paragraph Three The last day of the show features all of the winners of the preliminary show. They perform a song that they have chosen and the audience once again votes for their favorite singer; however, only this time there is only one winner chosen for that day and whoever wins gets a dream ticket. The dream ticket really is a dream because it allows the contestant to pass the line at one of the regional auditions for the television show.
  14. 14. Conclusion The concluding paragraph brings an essay to a logical end. The reader is left with a deeper understanding of your topic. The conclusion will often summarize the main points that were discussed, without introducing any new ideas. Occasionally, a conclusion will offer an additional point for the reader to ponder, but usually the focus is on restating the main ideas.
  15. 15. Example Conclusion The process of becoming a contestant for American Idol seems simple enough, but you have to keep in mind that just because you made it through one round you still have three others to go. While this may seem overwhelming, it is an exciting and character building process. It never hurts to pursue your dreams.
  16. 16. Put it all together! • Include the following: – APA title page – Times New Roman font – 12 point font – Double line spacing
  17. 17. Title Page
