Unit VII The Body Revision
Follow the directions below for the completion of the body paragraphs revision assignment for Unit VII. If you have questions, please email your professor for assistance.
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to revise the body of your academic argumentative research paper.
Description: In this assignment, you will revise the three to four body paragraphs you wrote in Unit VI. The following are requirements of the assignment:
• Body Paragraphs: You will revise the body section of your paper, which includes three to four paragraphs comprised of five to seven sentences each. Each paragraph should be between 150-200 words. At a minimum, this portion of the paper should be around 450-600 words (for three paragraphs); a body section of this length will meet the minimum requirements of the assignment. Revisions must be substantive and according to the direction given by the professor.
The following must be included in each body paragraph, in the following order:
o Sentence 1: Point/reason sentence: This topic sentence will contain one of your reasons.
o Sentence 2: Explanation: In this sentence, you provide a sentence that further develops or explains Sentence 1.
o Sentence 3: Illustration: This sentence introduces evidence that supports the reason that is presented in Sentence 1.
o Sentence 4: Explanation of the illustration: Because the evidence does not necessarily stand on its own, you need to provide explanation so that the reader will understand how you interpreted the evidence to come to your reason.
o Sentences 5-6: Second illustration and explanation (optional): You may choose to include a second piece of evidence that is then followed by an explanation.
o Last Sentence: Transition: In this sentence, you will signal to the reader that you will be moving on to another point in the next paragraph. You do this to ease the movement from one point to another.
