1 UNIT 7 Process Paragraph

2 A process is a series, a sequence, an orderly progression. One step or event follows another: first this, then that, then something else. You generally write a Process paragraph to accomplish one of two tasks To describe how to make or do something To describe how something works

3 Tips in Writing a Process Paragraph Follow strict chronological (time) order (but try to make it as interesting as possible) If you are describing how to do something, indicate any special needs before you describe step one Be sure you complete the process (don't leave out any steps) Try to anticipate any difficulties and tell the reader what might be done to make the job more pleasant Tell the reader what to do if something goes wrong Define any unfamiliar terms

4 Topic Sentence Names the process Indicates the reason(s) someone should be interested in knowing about this process

5 Body Sentences Present the steps of the process in a clear manner and in sequential order Contain transitional expressions to illustrate the sequence and to add interest (so that the paragraph doesn't sound like a mere laundry list)

6 Concluding Sentence May congratulate the reader on now being able to do something new or Reaffirm the significance of understanding the process or Summarize the results of the process
