|Order of ideas\support
Paragraphs within the essay must have an order that a reader can follow. It is also helpful
to order sentences within a paragraph to make it easy for the reader.
Here are some (but not all-create you own) standard ways to order an essay\paragraph.
Space order - used for physical descriptions
Time order - used for telling a story, an anecdote, an event etc.
Order of Importance - used for illustration, cause/effect, classification/ argumentation etc.
General to specific - used for explanations, information, almost anything
Obvious to hidden - used to highlight your point, to alert reader to unknown etc
Pronouns should be used correctly. Antecedents (words they replace) should be clear.
They should agree in: number, gender, case.
Sentences must be constructed with accurate: verbs, modifiers, clauses, word selection
and structure that is constant and easy to follow.
