Recognize Effective Organization in Writing

Recognizing Methods of Paragraph Organization

Paragraphs can be developed in all the ways mentioned on the previous screen: reasons, concrete details, specific examples, facts, statistics, incidents and narratives.

Paragraphs may also use:

  • comparison-contrast,
  • cause and effect,
  • definition, and
  • classification.

These methods are often used in combination to support a main point. If a combination of methods is used, however, it should be used to make the main point clearer.
