...Body Paragraphs The Writing Process COM/150 July 24, 2011 Dana Kaufman Body Paragraphs According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of surgical enhancement procedures performed in the United States is continuously on the rise due to the fact that these surgeries are ever more available and accepted at a reasonable price. Nearly 12 million plastic surgeries were carried out in 2007 alone. These numbers show an increase of 7% from the previous year and almost a 60% increase from the year 2000 (Plastic Surgery Research.info, 2009). Cosmetic surgery is increasingly popular amongst teenagers; yet the risks associated with these controversial procedures should not be overlooked because of its quick fix for low self-esteem. What was once considered a procedure surgically to correct abnormalities or to reconstruct an accident induced victim, cosmetic surgery is now popular for a number of other personal reasons. The vast increase of interest in cosmetic surgeries is not only popular amongst the older generations seeking their young adult bodies but is also progressively more popular with teenagers seeking the “picture perfect body.” Although teen surgeries made up less than 2% of all cosmetic surgeries in 2007, the obsession produced by modern media to emulate the flawless bodies of the rich and famous puts added pressure on teens to undergo the knife. In today’s society of high-tech devices and “quick fixes,” teens now,......

Hughes' Paragraph

...Hughes’ Paragraph As every normal people, I had at least one conflict with my family, but the most memorable one is the one happened not for long after my grandfather was passed away, when my uncle, my aunt and their two children didn’t get along with my family only because of the will that my grandfather left for us. As I remember, we used to live as a big family in the same house and had dinners together. However, things changed as fast as I couldn’t believe right after my grandfather passed away. My uncle’s family moved out to live separately with my family and uncle and aunt rarely came to visit grandmother. Every time they came, they seemed to be indisposed, and the cousins wandered around, checked out mine and my brother’s belongings, criticized them and even had bad attitude forward my parents. To be honest, even the cousins and I were closed before, but I felt very uncomfortable and upset about that. It happened every time they came, so finally, I decided that next time, I would not let they do the same thing. “Nevertheless, that was only my thought, but how about my grandmother and my parents? Does the thing that I’m going to do make grandma, father and mother sad or disappointed about me?” I asked myself. I’d thought about that the whole time from the last time seeing them until they came again, then I decided not to do anything because I noticed that grandma was happy when uncle, aunt and the cousins came even with their bad behaviors. Instead of pulling a wry......

...Jessica Gibson I think my essay could have been a lot better than what I did. My essay lacked sequential order. I feel like my sentences could have been a bit more complex also. I think my topics did address my thesis statement the correct way. My paragraphs did not have a strong closing to support my topic. My essay only had little coherence; It flowed in certain portions of the essay. I think the order of my essay could have been revised from less important to most important. I think I did have strong evidence to support my topic but I could’ve used more vivid language. I also think the essay did reflect the evidence and explained the importance. I didn’t use many transitions in the essay neither. I think I could have used more transitional words to help my essay flow better. My goal when rewriting my essay is to be as vivid as possible. I admit my rough draft had many errors but I will try my best to avoid those errors when writing my final draft. My final draft will have better sentence structure and more transitions to help my essay flow better. I will try my best to support my topics in each paragraph so my essay. My final draft should be fresh and interesting. I think I didn’t paste myself for my rough draft and was trying to get the essay done. I must learn to paste myself and take out time to get all my thoughts together to improve my essay. I will try to use some of the techniques from the class to have a successful essay....

Each sentence is labelled with a letter. Choose the most logical order of sentences from among the given choices to construct a coherent paragraph. 1. A. B. C. D. E. The two neighbours never fought each other. Fights involving three male fiddler crabs have been recorded, but the status of the participants was unknown. They pushed or grappled only with the intruder. We recorded 17 cases in which a resident that was fighting an intruder was joined by an immediate neighbour, an ally.

Effective Paragraph

...Characteristics of an Effective Paragraph • Direction: a strong topic sentence that states the main idea and sets the course of the paragraph. It answers the question, “What is your point?” • Unity: makes one main point and sticks to that point throughout the paragraph • Coherence: ideas in the paragraph are logically connected and easy to follow ------------------------------------------------- • Development: main idea is well supported with details, facts, examples, reasons, etc. Unity Unity refers to the extent to which all of the ideas contained within a given paragraph "hang together" in a way that is easy for the reader to understand. When the writer changes to a new idea -- one which is not consistent with the topic sentence of the paragraph -- the writer should begin a new paragraph. Unity is important because it aids the reader in following along with the writer's ideas. The reader can expect that a given paragraph will deal only with one main topic; when a new paragraph begins, this signals that the writer is moving on to a new topic. Consider the following example. Note that there are two main ideas presented in this paragraph. The topic sentence indicates that the paragraph will deal with the subject of "employees' attitudes," but the paragraph shifts unexpectedly to the topic of "management's attitudes." To achieve unity in this paragraph, the writer should begin a new paragraph when the switch is made from employees to......

Narrative Paragraph

...Narrative Paragraph Each person is different, so it varies on each individual. Usually, one has to practice whatever it is they are trying to learn. For example, if playing a game you should read instructions if there are any. Retaining this information is one step in the process of learning the game. Once you actually 'play' the game you get an understanding of it. After this is accomplished, you may continue 'practicing' until you are satisfied with your progress. So, let me tell a story of my learning English experienced. My friends say that i'm good in English, because I always get good marks in English tests and I have just scored the highest points in the interview. They think I’m a talented girl and I’m clever at English from the beginning. But in fact, I’m not a talented girl. I’m just a common girl. I’d like to say something about my experienced on didn't do well in English in the beginning. I started my English course at the age of 10. Maybe you can't imagine, I couldn't say a whole sentence at that time. I couldn't catch up with my classmates because of my bad base. Having a bad base may be many students' problem. I was sad about it, I spent almost all of my free time practicing English by listening to the tape and repeating after it. Whenever it was, wherever I was, I kept the tape on. I listened carefully and I tried to recite the articled of it. Once of learning English, soon, I found I had made a good progress in my English. At least, I could understand what......

Abstract Writting

...paste sentences that particularly capture key passages. This technique is useful for social science research with findings that cannot be encapsulated by neat numbers or concrete results. A well-written humanities draft will have a clear and direct thesis statement and informative topic sentences for paragraphs or sections. Isolate these sentences in a separate document and work on revising these disparate sentences into a unified paragraph.(it should sound unified, not fragmented!) 2. Identify key terms: Search through the entire document for key terms that identify the purpose, scope, and methods of the work. Pay close attention to the Introduction (or Purpose) and the Conclusion (or Discussion). These sections should contain all the main ideas and key terms in the paper. When writing the abstract be sure to incorporate the key terms. 3. Highlight key phrases and sentences: Instead of cutting and pasting the actual words, try highlighting sentences or phrases that appear to be central to the work. Then, in a separate document, re-write the sentences and phrases in your own words. 4. Don't look back: After reading the entire work, put it aside and write a paragraph about the work without referring to it. In the first draft you may not remember all the key terms or the results, but you will remember what the main point of the work was. Remember not to include any information you did not get from the work being abstracted. 4 Revise, revise, revise No......

Paragraph 1

...Paragraph 1 Thank you for considering me for the position of Sales Manager at Einstein Furniture and Design in Dallas. Interior design has always fascinated me and after working at a small furniture store in my hometown, I fell in love with how creative one can be in this field. Cindy Wilbanks, my ninety-year-old manager at the time, was a true inspiration. Her knowledge and experience in interior design paved the way for my continued interest in designing spaces and creating one of a kind experiences for customers. Ms. Wilbanks’ fifty years of experience and her unique wealth of knowledge encouraged me on a daily basis. She worked her way up over the years and never gave up on her dream of owning her own store. She indeed opened and ran a successful store of her own and landed herself at the top of the industry. She eventually sold her legacy store, becoming one of the wealthiest women in Texas. Thankfully, she decided to train individuals like myself and worked in the industry with an undeniable passion all of her life. I’m excited that I now have that same passion for my career and I look forward to visiting with you to discuss what I can bring to your team. Paragraph 2 Like I told you before, there is a position open here at Schmaltz Bookkeeping Service. The position is as assistant to my boss, Glendora Brock. I know you feel like you don’t have the experience to be an assistant in the bookkeeping world, but I honestly feel like you would be perfect. I......

Writing Paragraphs

...First paragraph. When it comes to writing a paper we should be very careful with mistakes, which we might have. While we writing our paper we might face many challenges. The first challenge which people might face writing a paper it is when there are too many words, which repeat a lot. People usually do not pay enough attention to that because they do not think it is a big deal usually. However we should pay attention to repeat words a lot, it might get our readers be confused and think that we do not know grammar rules at all. The second challenge, which people do face it is when they write too long or too short sentences. In other words, people do not keep sentence variety or rhythm of the paragraphs. When our writing does have sentences that too long or too short, it looks like we write long sentences because we do not know what we are trying to explain. The third challenge is not putting punctuation where it need to be. Without a punctuation the whole paper will look like it is not organized at all and does have a lot of information, which look like a mess. All our mistakes in paper will make our readers think that we just do not know basic grammar rules and it might lead to the situation where our readers will not take our work serious. Second paragraph. It is not so easy to overcome the challenges that we might face while we are writing a paper. The best way of avoiding them is to find them before we will submit our work. It is not easy but we can do it, if......

As such, they will contain all necessary components of action development: protagonist, setting, goal, obstacle, climax and resolution. Writing a narration paragraph requires, consequently, accounting for sequential order of events and chronology. There are many descriptive elements included in the body of a narration paragraph but, if composed correctly, the paragraph will prioritize action over description. Exposition Paragraph Often times, this kind of a paragraph is used as a component of other types of writing. It’s written in order to clarify or explain problems and phenomena. Writing exposition paragraphs requires strict focus on evidence and objective language. It can contain elements of comparison and contrast, or cause and effect writing as both facilitate accurate exposition of the subject-matter. Definition Paragraph Definition paragraphs are used in order to explain the meaning, origin and function of things. They are used both in academic writing and fiction.

The 724th Transportation Company is typical of the many units that have served and are now serving in the War on Terrorism. The action of 9 April 2004 was not an exceptional occurrence. Similar engagements happened every day. The Soldiers of the 724th responded as all Soldiers do—in a selfless, professional manner.
