English 101 Fall 2004 Transition between Paragraphs Workshop PART 1 Below are excerpts from different students’ essays. Answer the following questions for each excerpt: a. What is the topic of the essay? b. What is each paragraph about? c. Does the writer lead the readers through each section purposefully, i.e., letting them know exactly what is happening?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
