When to Start a Paragraph Alex P.

In my language arts class, I presented a Keynote, using my iPad, on when to start a paragraph. I used many visual effects and transitions and I also used Doodle Buddy to write the key concepts instead of typing. I used this technique because it emphasizes the point and it pops out. During this presentation, I covered what a paragraph is and how to structure it. I presented how to start dialogue paragraphs and regular paragraphs.

A way to remember the paragraph structure is to use the acronym IFREECT. What it stands for is listed below:

Introduction (thesis statement)







One starts a paragraph when going to begin to write about a new topic. A paragraph is four to eight sentences that expand on one idea. This is also in a way, the case with dialogue paragraphs.

One begins a dialogue paragraph when the speaker changes. All the thoughts and actions of the character stay in the same paragraph as the dialogue.

I chose this project because I felt that I wrote well-structured paragraphs. Therefore, I believed it might be something easier for me to explain.

  1. I really liked your presentation! I thought it was really colorful and interesting! It really kept my attention! Where did you get all of your facts?

  2. The paragraph structuring comes from my former school. We focused a lot last year on having well written paragraphs. I also really enjoyed watching/listening yours! I was partially confused on subject and predicate, but you cleared everything up!
