Assignment: Body / conclusion Writing Assignment: Using the guidelines and samples, write a fully developed body paragraph and concluding paragraph for the topic you selected for your thesis paragraph: The Legalization of Marijuana in the US; Texting while Driving; or the Smoking Ban on Campus. Assume that you are assigned a 5 page paper on this subject. Do not write the complete 5 page draft – this exercise requires one body paragraph and one concluding paragraph. As these are fairly common topics, use your own ideas and avoid using and abundance of statistics or outside research. For this exercise, do not focus heavily on substance or ideas – I am primarily concerned with organization. Two structurally sound, fully developed paragraphs modeled after one or more of the samples are all that is required for this assignment. Your body paragraph should contain what you think is the most important argument for or against the subject—do not ramble. Paragraphs should be on one document. Do not write in first person Use the guidelines and samples to help you draft your paragraphs. Be sure to edit for conciseness and wordiness. Follow MLA formatting guidelines. Additional guidelines can be found in chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 in the textbook. Submit your completed draft through blackboard.

Whereas the thesis sentence controls the essay, your topic sentence will control the body paragraph. Make body paragraphs specific If your supporting paragraphs are vague, readers will lose interest, remain unconvinced of your thesis, and have trouble grasping your meaning. On the other hand, paragraphs filled with concrete, specific details engage readers, lend force to ideas, and clarify meaning. In short, don’t just tell readers about your ideas, but show them what you are trying to convey. Provide adequate support Each supporting paragraph should also have adequate support so that your readers can see clearly the validity of your topic sentence. An effective supporting paragraph will contain an assortment of examples, facts, anecdotes, and personal observations.
