Steps for paragraph writing

  1. 1. Steps for paragraph writing
  2. 2. Steps for paragraphwriting:• Paragraph writing consists of many necessary steps to be taken into consideration:• before, while and after writing.
  3. 3. Step 1: Before Writing • In this stage it is important to specify the topic you are intending to tackle. • Take a sheet of paper and just start jotting down notes that have tight connection with your topic. (outline your topic) • After you gather the data necessary for your topic, the next step is to be taken. • Example: – The topic: • Canada is one of the best countries in the world. – Outline the topic: • Health care • Education • Cleanliness
  4. 4. Step 2: While Writing Topic Sentence: Choose a topic sentence for your paragraph that states the main idea of your topic. The topic sentence is a statement that generally introduces the topic and thus it is often referred to as: the opening statement. Example: There are three reasons why Canada is one of the best countries in the world Supporting Sentences: These are sentences that support the topic sentence. They give information that reinforces the main idea stated in the topic sentence. So there should at least be three supporting sentences because one or two make the paragraph less convincing and not worth the effort done to build it. Example: First, Canada has an excellent health care system. All Canadians have access to medical services at a reasonable price. Second, Canada has a high standard of education. Students are taught by well-trained teachers and are encouraged to continue studying a university. Finally, Canadas cities are clean and efficiently managed. Canadian cities have many parks and lots of space for people to live. Concluding Sentence: This is the last sentence of your paragraph and it should reflect what you have talked about in your paragraph and it should echo the topic sentence in a way or another. Example: As a result, Canada is a desirable place to live.
  5. 5. Step 3: After Writing Reviewing: This final step can be called the editing step. This is a very crucial stage of your work process as you should review what you have done. Among the things that this stage is about are: 1. Use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. 2. Use clear handwriting. 3. Consider the coherence and cohesion of the paragraph. 4. Express your main idea in the topic sentence in a clear declarative sentence. 5. Dont use complex or far fetched terms that may puzzle the corrector. 6. Use simple sentence. 7. Instead of definitions explain and give examples. 8. Dont write excessive supporting details. 9. Stick to your topic without redundancy. 10.Discard irrelevant supporting details
  6. 6. Example: (Writing the finalparagraph) There are three reasons why Canada is one of the best countries in the world. First, Canada has an excellent health care system. All Canadians have access to medical services at a reasonable price. Second, Canada has a high standard of education. Students are taught by well-trained teachers and are encouraged to continue studying a university. Finally, Canadas cities are clean and efficiently managed. Canadian cities have many parks and lots of space for people to live. As a result, Canada is a desirable place to live.
