Week 5: Linking ideas
So far you have looked at the essay-writing process and at the structure of each part of a good essay. This week you will look at the essay as a whole and focus on ways to link its various parts so that readers will find it easy to read.
Anna introduces the week in the following video:
Some of the activities this week are based on Fred’s essay from Week 4. I suggest you download the file that’s been provided and print it out, as you may find it helpful to be able to highlight, underline or annotate portions of the text.
By the end of this week you will be able to recognise ways to:
- link the introduction and the paragraphs to the essay question
- introduce new information by linking it to information already known to the reader
- link paragraphs and sentences through linking words and phrases.
