#1 Practice Paragraph

Read Melissa Unbankes’s “The King and I” on pages 132- 137 of The Norton Sampler.  In this short narrative, the author, Melissa Unbankes, describes her grandmother and tells how their relationship changed over time.  After reading the story, write a paragraph about a friend or family member, considering the following:

  • What does the person do?  Does the person have a job or career, or is his/her focus on taking care of family?
  • What is something the person is passionate about?
  • What is a place you associate with that person?
  • What is one annoying or unusual trait about that person?
  • What does that person mean to you?

Now, write the paragraph.  Be sure you start with a topic sentence, which is a general statement that introduces the person to the audience.
