Adding Structure And Transitions

Assignment: Adding Structure and Transitions

For this Assignment, you will review the Learning Resources on transitions, paragraph development, and the MEAL plan. With the principles outlined in the Learning Resources in mind, you will add transitional phrases, words, or sentences that connect your three paraphrased main ideas from the Week 3 Assignment.

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Review      the Learning Resources related to transitions, paragraph development, and      the MEAL plan.
  • Review      your three paraphrased main ideas from the Week 3      Assignment with the MEAL plan model in mind.

The Assignment: Max 550 words, APA format, 2 references.

Revise the three paraphrased main points from the Week 3 Assignment to align with MEAL plan guidelines (see attached filed for week 3 assignment).

To do so, separate each main point into its own paragraph. Add a topic sentence (the M in the MEAL plan), and add 2–3 sentences per paraphrased main point to create connection between the ideas. Be sure to review your Week 2 Assignment (see attached file for week 2 assignment) where you created a rationale for selecting each main point. That particular Assignment may help guide you in creating transitional phrases for better flow.

Use the following questions to guide the writing of your paragraphs:

1) Does each paragraph begin with a clearly stated topic sentence?

2) Does each paragraph include a paraphrased main point?

3) Does each paragraph incorporate transitional phrases to flow from one idea to the next?
