5th and 7th Period--Moving from Outline to Paragraphs, 5/22
The good part about spending so much time on your outline is that if you have done it well, then writing the paragraphs for your argument will be a snap! Look below at how I wrote my body paragraph from the outline we did together. Each section of the outline is colored to match what I wrote in the paragraph. See the similarities??
II. Body Paragraph: Proof of no “unfair judgment”
A. Transition and topic sentence: First of all, illegal immigrants are in no way judged unfairly by Prop. 187.
B. Context about the judgment Prop. 187: The law states that illegal immigrants are causing Californian’s economic harm. They feel they are paying too much to provide illegals with things like education.
C. Evidence: $4 billion cost (p. 6/note card 3)
D. Explain evidence! (how does it prove there is no unfair judgment) _________________________________
E. Tie-back to your thesis: Therefore, since Prop. 187 doesn’t judge illegals unfairly, there is no discrimination involved with this law.
