Questions to think about: 1) What are the differences between unity, cohesion and development? 2) Using the TEE rule as a starting point, think about different ways that you can develop your argument in a paragraph. If you're stuck, go to the following link from the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) and read through the page: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/606/01/ 3) In your opinion, should all paragraphs have a concluding or transitional sentence? Why or why not? Do you agree with the author about not introducing new information in the concluding paragraph? Why or why not? 4) Critical reading: take an article from a journal or a textbook in your field and go through three paragraphs looking for elements of unity, coherence and development. Also, take a quick look at the introductory and concluding paragraphs and see if they match the format the presenter gave. Make brief notes on this for yourself. Make sure you note down any new elements that you find (things that were not presented in this video). 5) Self assessment: go through a piece of your recent writing and pick two paragraphs and edit them for elements of unity, cohesion and development. Hand in both your original paragraphs and the edited ones by the due date listed in Moodle.
Think on this: What effect does your audience have on the types of cohesion and development elements you include in your paragraphs? Does it matter?
