Descriptive paragraph, English

When you write to describe, you create a visual picture in the reader's mind by writing sentences that work together to present a single, clear description of a person, a place, a thing, an event, or an idea.  For this assignment, you will pick one of the following options as the basis of your descriptive paragraph:

OPTIONS

(1)   How does an orange feel to touch?

(2)   How does water smell?

(3)   How does wind taste?

(4)   How does a tree sound?

(5)   How does despair look?

A successful paragraph will:

  • Be specific and creative
  • Have a clear main idea that is supported with specific details
  • Include the descriptive devices discussed in class (five senses, dominant impression, figures of speech, etc.)
  • Be relatively free of errors
  • Conform to APA formatting requirements

HELPFUL REMINDER

Before class, on the day that the final draft is due, attach your paragraph assignment packet in the following order: cover page on top followed by the final draft, peer review sheets, rough draft, and then the prewrite.  Don't forget to submit a soft copy to SafeAssign!

As always, be sure to contact me via email, or see me in person, if you have any questions on this assignment.
