Unformatted text preview: Identifying Methods of Development In this tutorial you will learn to recognize common strategies for organizing and presenting information in college writing assignments. Lesson 10 Chapter 13 discusses various "methods of development"strategies for organizing ideas in argumentative essays or other forms of writing. The methods of development discussed include: narration description cause and effect classification and division contrast and comparison illustration definition Narration Tells a story in a chronological order Personal or a friends experience that is worth recounting Description Concrete details about something Cause Reasons for the occurrence of the event, action, decision Why it happened What was the cause Effect Results of an event, decision, action What happened What will happen if. Classification and Division Take a large group and break it down into smaller groups or components Comparison Discuss similarities Contrast Discuss dissimilarities Illustration Provide examples to help clarify a point Definition We tell exactly what we mean by a word or a concept All of geological time is divided into two Eons: the Precambrian Eon, followed by the Phanerozoic Eon. The Precambrian Eon is the time from the formation of the earth until evolution had progressed sufficiently to produce animals with hard parts that could commonly be preserved as fossils. This time makes up 88% of the entire history of earth. The Phanerozoic Eon begins about 600 million years ago and continues to the present day. Because the Precambrian Eon contains little evidence of life, it cannot readily be divided up using fossils. However, the Phanerozoic is divided into three Eras: the Paleozoic (which means the time of early life forms), the Mesozoic (the time of middle life forms), and Cenozoic (times of later life forms). (Brian Knapp, Fossils (Danbury, CT: Grolier Educational, 2000), p. 50) Based on your study of this chapter, which method of development does this passage illustrate?
