WRITING

 

BEFORE WRITING:

 

    • You must brainstorm ideas for your essay and then select the best ones.


THEME ORGANIZATION :

     1.  Introduction: what you are going to write about

     2.  Development: exposition of ideas

     3.  Conclusion: little summary of your ideas or personal opinion.


HOW YOU MUST WRITE:

    • Write  paragraphs  with  clear  ideas. These  paragraphs  must  be  easy   to  understand  and  completely   developed.   Keep   your    sentences   short   and   well-punctuated, not  long  and complex. Omit unnecessary words.

 

    • Place  the  main  idea  in  the  first  sentence  of each paragraph.  Develop   this  main  idea with supporting material.

 

    • Use   transitional   words ( first,  yet,  however,   consequently…).  Lead    the   reader  to  the thought of the following paragraph by a final transitional sentence. Open the next paragraph with a transitional word; for example, if you put moreover, you indicate to the reader that you will offer additional supporting evidence for your viewpoint.

 

    • Give coherence to your writing by maintaining a consistent point of view. Unnecessary, sudden and illogical shifts in point of view, that is, in  subject, person,  number,  tense, voice  and  mood, affect sentence and paragraph relationships, thus obscuring meaning. Make the verb agree with the subject.
