Writing - Paragraph Format

Paragraph Format

Notes

Since writing is the flip side of reading, writers need to follow the paragraph format.

Use the following questions for writing a paragraph to ensure that you follow the paragraph format:

  • Did I write a main idea for your paragraph?
  • Is the introductory sentence my main idea?
  • Do the sub-ideas focus on the main idea?
  • Do the supporting details focus on each sub-idea?
  • Did I write a concluding sentence?

Assignment

Write two paragraphs of about 6 sentences each. Use the paragraph format.
