Guide to Organized Writing

Students too often put off a written assignment, considering it a chore too formidable to approach until the last minute. As a result, grades inevitably suffer.

Writing is not a talent reserved for a select few, it is a skill that can be learned. Planning and organization are its essentials. With a knowledge of these, the student can through effort and practice improve his writing ability.

Suggested below is a guide to organized writing. Use this outline in writing class assignments, essay tests, and term papers.


1. INTRODUCTION - OPENING PARAGRAPH

a. Begin with a general statement.
b. Narrow it down to the controlling idea (for thesis statement).

2. BODY - THREE DEVELOPING PARAGRAPHS

b. Develop the topic sentence with details, definitions, illustrations, comparisons, and contrasts.
c. Conclude the paragraph with a summary of the main idea.

3. CONCLUSION - FINISHING PARAGRAPH
