It's All in the Details: Writing a Good Example

October 2 and 3, 2002


This week, we will discuss ways to improve our detail (example) sentences to make them more vivid, memorable, and true.

Good Examples (Class Discussion):

What kinds of details do we like or enjoy when we discuss or have a conversation with another person?

How can we be sure that something another person says or writes is true?

 Class Sharing:

From your short paragraph on “Vancouver Weather,” choose a strong, detailed example to share with the class. If you have not written a paragraph, write one good quality detail sentence to share. 

Writing Assignment:

Take one of your topic sentences OR one of your short paragraphs on “Vancouver Weather” and either write a 150 word paragraph OR increase the length of your paragraph by about 50 words or so. Use the information on good quality detail from today’s class to guide your writing.
