Homework Assignment 2: Descriptive Paragraph


In a complete and well-developed paragraph, describe one of the following:

  • Your Favorite Place
  • A Friend, Enemy or Frenemy!
  • Someone You Admire
  • A Pet
  • A Thing You Cannot Live Without
  • Your Favorite Song

Remember that you want to create a dominant impression in your paragraph and imply your topic, rather than state it explicitly. Use the handout on description to help you write your paper.

I will be grading your paragraphs based on the following elements:

  1. Development: Three stages; adequate details/exemplification
  2. Grammar: Use of complete sentences
  3. Language: Use of lively verbs; avoiding the passive voice; use of figurative language where appropriate (similes, metaphors, personification, synesthesia); use of language that appeals to the senses.
  4. Implied topic sentence
  5. Effective creation of a dominant impression
