You should include the following steps: 1) Think 2) Outline / concept map (don’t write sentences yet) a. Main idea (what is the message of the painting?) b. Supporting details 3) May want to look up words/vocabulary in bilingual dictionary 4) Write the paragraph (be sure to leave margins, indent 1 st line, etc.) a. Should include academic vocabulary, grammar features that we have studied such as adjective clauses b. (conclusion should restate the main idea in different words) 5) Check the grammar!
