Anecdote Riddles Fragment technique Quotations Shocking statement ANECDOTE

A short story within an introduction to make the point clear. Example: Sally got out of bed, and looked at the alarm clock. She was running late! She would have to hurry to catch the bus. This was one of those days that she was glad that her school had a uniform policyshe wouldnt have to waste much time picking out an outfit. Riddles Get your readers attention with a

challenging thought. Whats plain, and boring? What makes all students in a school building look the same and lose their individuality? If you guessed UNIFORMS, youre correct! Fragment technique Uses 3 short fragments to create an image. Example: A brand new fishing pole, a bucket of worms, and a warm spring day! These

things were present on the day I caught a record-breaking keeper. Quotations Conversational Mom, Ive signed up to fight for my country! Famous Quote "War is nothing without a solider to fight it." - Unknown

Shocking statements Provides statistics or facts that startles readers to pull them into your story. Example Can you believe that over 90% of students polled at our school are dissatisfied with school lunch, but only 5% are willing to pack their own lunches? 3 strong body paragraphs with innovative ideas You should come up with three

points to support your opinion Each of the points will be turned into a body paragraph Try to think of ideas that no one else would think of 3 strong body paragraphs with innovative ideas (an example) Your school has a uniform policy. Some people argue that uniforms in schools are beneficial because they cause less

distractions, and some argue that they are not a good idea because they take away a students individuality. Do you agree or disagree with uniform policy? Make sure to support your position 3 strong body paragraphs with innovative ideas (an example) Thesis: Uniform policies are beneficial in schools, and should be implemented nationwide.

Reason 1: Allows for less bullying based on wardrobe. Reason 2: Students will concentrate more on school and less on attire. Reason 3: It cuts down on cost of school clothes and time spent getting ready in the morning. Tremendous transition words Transition words move from one thought to the next Usually at the beginning of 3 body

paragraphs Avoid the same weak transition words (first, next, last) A killer conclusion with a clincher statement Clincher statement is the last line of your paper. It should almost shock your reader Conclusion leaves a lasting impression

A killer conclusion with a clincher statement In conclusion, over 95% of parents polled are in agreement with a school wide uniform policy. Uniforms allow students to be who they are, not what they wear. After all, shouldnt school be about academics rather than apparel? Its time our nation got back to reading, writing, and arithmetic.not Baby Phat, Apple Bottom, and FUBU.
