- in a list, e.g. I like apples, bananas, and mangos, but I hate pineapple, strawberries, and grapes.
- for an introduction clause, e.g. Furthermore, writing can promote better concentration.
- when using a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or, yet, etc.) to join together two independent clauses, e.g. I like apples, but Paul only likes pineapple.
We also analyzed how to write an introduction paragraph. Remember that introduction paragraphs take a different structure than body paragraphs. Introduction paragraphs require 3 parts:
- An attention-grabbing hook that will draw the reader in like a fish caught on a line;
- An explanation of how your hook relates to your thesis; and
- A thesis statement for the entire essay. Your thesis statement must list the three points you will talk about in your essay, e.g. reading, writing, and English, as both a subject and a language.
Your homework for tonight, January 21, is to:
1) write an introduction paragraph for your 3 paragraphs on the relevancy of reading, writing, and English, and
2) write a 4-paragraph essay on, What would the world be like if zombies ruled?
- For this 4-paragraph essay, don't worry about a conclusion paragraph. (We'll look at that tomorrow.) :)
DUE: Tomorrow, Wednesday, January, 22.
