Product Description:

In this fast-paced world, not everyone has time to read long explanations, and writers must be able to write concise, informative, and easy-to-read paragraphs. Recommended by the Institute for Excellence in Writing, this book shares everything you need to know about writing effective paragraphs. In an organized, straight-to-the-point way, it first describes paragraphs in general, telling about the history, definition, function, length, development, topic sentence, unity, coherence, and organizing of paragraphs. Then the majority of the book explains and offers examples for 30 distinct types of paragraphs (chronological, descriptive, spatial, analogy, comparison, opinion, narrative, introductory, etc.). For each type of paragraph, a chapter describes the paragraph, tells when it is best used, gives a great example of that style of paragraph, analyzes the example paragraph, and gives a number of helpful tips for writing the featured type of paragraph. This is a great reference for seeing how to write different paragraphs and perfect for showing students that there is more to paragraphs than just a topic sentence and supporting details. 186 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

Institute for Excellence in Writing has downloadable lesson plans for this, and I was looking for something slightly different to do to take a break from IEW.
