New School Year, New Bloggers!

Featured

Our 2017-2018 West Ridge Wildcats have been blogging for a few weeks now, and we’re off to a great start!

The topics we choose to write about each week can vary widely, but there’s always a common skill we’re focusing on.  Recently, that skill has been paragraphing.  No one wants to read a long block of text (especially when reading online).

We’ve been noticing the various ways in which paragraphing can be effective:

  • paragraphing helps our readers follow our thinking
  • paragraphing can add emphasis to a moment, helping our readers see, hear, and feel what we want them to see, hear, and feel
  • paragraphing can enhance mood and add voice to a piece of writing

Check out these blog posts on a variety of topics, and notice how we’re organizing our thoughts into paragraphs 🙂

We invite you to leave us some comments.  We’d love to hear from you!
