8th 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. Reason 1: No “unfair judgment,” proof #1
A. Transition and topic sentence: First of all, illegal immigrants are in no way judged unfairly in Prop. 187.
B. Context: The law states that illegal immigrants are causing economic and physical harm to Californians by taking jobs and costing tax payers excessive amounts of money.
C. Evidence: $4 billion cost (p. 6/note card 3)
D. Explain my evidence! (________________________)
E. Tie-back to thesis: Therefore, since illegal immigrants haven’t been judged unfairly, they also have clearly not been discriminated against.
