- One paragraph can only take ONE topic. That means that you will write one paragraph about the benefits of writing and one paragraph about the benefits of reading.
- Use the 5-sentence paragraph structure that we've been practicing. That means you will NOT list all the benefits of reading in one paragraph. Instead, you will list only three benefits: one for each example sentence. You may, however, add sentences if they are specific examples, e.g. One benefit of reading is increased focus and memorization. According to the article 10 Benefits of Reading, reading 15 to 20 minutes before school can help a person concentrate better for the rest of the day. (Remember that you may not use my words, but you may use the model your sentence after my example.)
- Keep your sentences simple! No run-on sentences, pretty please.
