Your handout looks like this


 

This week you will write a three paragraph essay in Problem-Solution format.

The first paragraph is done for you ...

 

This is the start of a short essay on a common problem in English classes:

 

Every Sunday, cadets come to classes tired because they did not get enough sleep. This has become a problem for the instructors. There are several reasons for this. However, there could be a way to solve this problem.

 

Write two topic sentences that will start two more paragraphs.

  • The first paragraph is on reasons for students being so tired in class,
  • The second paragraph is about solutions to the problem.

 

Topic sentence 1

 

 

 

Topic sentence 2

 

 

 

Class 2: Write the 3-paragraph essay

 

Directions:

 Write the essay - Give your essay a title, complete the paragraphs, and submit the 3-paragraph essay to your instructor by the end of your second class.

 

By now, after three weeks in the course and a week-long holiday, each student is expected to have a Google Account and to be in the HCT Network System.

 

In case you have not got around to creating a Google account, of if you've forgot your password ... 

You can complete this in GoogleDocs or Word.

Copy the first paragraph to a Google Doc or Word Document.

How your Problem / Solution essay due Nov 24 has been marked

 

In class you were asked to begin a short essay on a problem at your college and its solution. The essay should have 3 paragraphs.  You copied the first paragraph into a Google Doc.  You were expected to write the TOPIC SENTENCES for the second and third paragraphs on a worksheet and hand this back to the teacher.  That worksheet was marked separately (in Week 2).

 

In your Google Doc you are to write the three paragraphs.  Each paragraph should begin with a good topic sentence.  You were to follow the instructions on the worksheet to complete the essay in class Nov 23-24.
