Purpose: How will you inform readers that you plan to discuss advantages and disadvantages?
Attention Grabbing Techniques Current Event Incident Startling Fact Startling Statement Unusual Opinion Historical Event Series of Analogies Division of Topic Strong Opinion Anecdote Quotation Description of Something Familiar Example Describe a Compelling Scene Contradiction Promise of Benefit Brief Narrative Memorable Sensory Detail
Attention Grabbing Techniques Unusual Opinion: School should be in session twelve months a year. Quotation: “To be great is to be misunderstood” (Ralph Waldo Emerson). Description of Something Familiar: It is Saturday morning, and you have slept well past your early, school-day alarm. A friend calls and suggests meeting at the batting cages in North Park. On the way there, you stop at Tomato Pie for a late breakfast. Describe a Compelling Scene: As muddy flood water raged and swelled, desperate people could be seen perched on roof tops desperately yelling and signaling for help. Rain pelted them; wind whipped at their soaked clothing. Contradiction: Parents and other caregivers are not the most important role models in their children’s lives. Memorable Sensory Detail: The stringent sting of smoke sliced into the once untainted air of my living room. Rhetorical Question: What is ethical behavior? Who gets to decide what is right and what is wrong?
Body Advantages/Disadvantages For each paragraph, be sure to Clearly state and explain the advantage or disadvantage Support the advantage or disadvantage with a fact, expert opinion, or anecdote Elaborate by extending you support with examples. Remember each paragraph should have a MINIMUM of FIVE sentences: (1) state advantage or disadvantage, (2) support, (3-4) explain example, (5) closing or bridge Include a minimum of three body paragraphs, some combination of 2:1
Transitions Transitional words or phrases are used throughout paragraphs to connect ideas and tell how they are related. On your draft… Add at least four transition words.
Conclusion Advantages/Disadvantages Pick a strong advantage and a strong disadvantage from the body of your paper. Restate both in a way that allows your reader to draw his/her own conclusion. DO NOT include YOUR opinion. Remember: Link (don’t repeat) your closing sentence to your attention grabber.
