Power Paragraphs is a writing workbook that uses a simple and memorable analogy: that the parts of an essay are like the parts of a sandwich. The qbreadq at the top and bottom represents the main idea; the qmeatq of the essay is the topic sentences; the qlettuceq develops with supporting ideas; the qmayoq and qmustardq are transitional elements. Add a qgarnishq at the top for an interest statement and your sandwich is complete, delicious, satisfying, and easy to read and understand. The book is ideal for writers at all levels because, in one memorable picture, the organizational pattern of any piece of writing can be easily stated and easily understood. Use this book to improve your personal communications or in classes for English language speakers at any level.Use this book to improve your personal communications or in classes for English language speakers at any level.
