Paragraphing


The main purpose of paragraphing is to break a text up into chunks.

As a result, the writing will flow better, and the reader is able to follow the text more easily.

When you are writing, it can be useful to make a brief plan for each paragraph, so all the relevant information stays together.

 


How do you do this?


Well, within each paragraph, you should use the P.E.E method:

P oint

E vidence

E xplanation


This means you should start with your overall point, then give an example.

You should then expand on and explain your point.

Planning your answer


How?


Having a plan will make it easier to include key points when you are writing your final text.

Gathering thoughts beforehand will also ensure the question is answered properly and has a clear structure.

Your plan does not have to be in any particular format, whatever works for you!

It could be a checklist, bullet points, a mind map or even rough notes.

 


Helpful Details to Include


It may also be helpful to number your points and order you plan, so you can write your text as you go along.

A plan will also need to be tailored to specific styles.

In other words, the audience and purpose will need to be considered for different text types.

For example, whether to use formal or informal language.

Capital Letters


Make sure all of the sentences in your text begin with a capital letter.

Always use a capital letter after these forms of punctuation:

  • A full stop (.)
  • An exclamation mark (!)
  • A question mark (?)

However, you can also use capital letters in the middle of sentences.

For example:

I‘ and proper nouns such as days of the week or names of people always need a capital letter, as seen in the review.

Final Things to Consider


 

A) It is important that writing is neat.

 

If the reader cannot read your writing, your communication will not be effective.

This will also impact your marks in the exam.

To help with this, try to stay within the lines and write clearly.

 

B) It is also important to proofread your work after writing.

 

This way, you can spot any mistakes you may have made, and ensure that all parts of the question are addressed.
