Using Borrowed Words
In a well-developed paragraph, reflect on the significance of what you read that you were assigned. Reflect on the information you learned fand any questions you have. Do you agree or disagree with the author? Will the information you learned affect your own life?
Remember that a well-developed paragraph should have a strong topic sentence with solid concrete details to support the main point you are trying to make. Use examples from the text and from your experience to support your topic sentence. If you borrow exact words from the article, remember to use quotation marks to indicate that you are using borrowed words. Reference the paragraph editing checklist on pages 356-357 in The Norton Field Guide to Writing textbook.
