Question Description

Assignment Description:

For this assignment, you are to compose three descriptive paragraphs on topics of your choice.

Descriptive writing is a discursive genre common to a variety of academic and professional contexts. From police reports to artist statements in an art gallery or museum, description is a challenging but essential feature of writing. Developing the ability to compose vivid, detailed, and concise descriptions will help prepare you for the types of writing you will be asked to do in your academic and professional life.

While you are free to choose which subjects or objects you will describe for these three paragraphs, be sure to choose subjects or objects that lend themselves to detailed and specific description. As your textbook states, descriptive writing gives the reader a “dominant impression – an overall feeling the details work together to create” (Ideas 154). Descriptive writing should utilize concrete, specific, and inviting details, and use descriptive verbs.

For potential topics see pg. 182. We will also brainstorm a list of potential topics in class.

Review Chapter 6 and be sure to consider I.D.E.A.S. (161-162).

I – Create interest

D – Provide developed details to show your dominant impression

E – Determine what details you must explain

A – Consider your audience

S – Give attention to style to ensure that your paragraph functions as a unified whole and is not just a listing of details

Purpose: Provide vivid and detailed description of an object or artifact of your choice

Audience: General audience

Assignment Requirements:

  • Length – 150 – 200 words (per paragraph)
  • Typed and saved as an MS Word document
  • Total Points: 100

Descriptive paragraphs: Playing basketball in a small Indiana town

The day that the entire Bloomingdale had been waiting for months was here. It was
the day for the great Bloomingdale derby between Bloomingdale Lions and the Bloomingdale
cheetahs. The teams had the prime share of basketball fans in Bloomingdale. What made the
today’s game too tense was the fact that the teams had won the Bloomingdale’s basketball
league equal times. Therefore, this game would determine the winner and undisputable
champion of the Bloomingdale basketball league. The fans are great rivals and in so many
