Write a Description Paragraph
Description, another one of the nine patterns of paragraph development, involves using words to create a word picture of a subject. A goal of this pattern is for your readers to be able to experience what you are describing. Details that appeal to all of the senses are used: seeing, smelling, hearing, touching, and tasting.
Again, recalling what you learned in this module’s readings, refer back to Chapter 14, Description, in your textbook. Use one of the topics below (there are a few more listed in your textbook). Write a description paragraph. Begin by filling in the blank of the topic sentence provided by your textbook.
“I could tell by looking at the room that a ___________ lived there.”
cat or dog lover
chef or cook
Your paragraph should contain the following:
Approximately 175-200 words
The given topic sentence with the person listed
