Discussion: Literature Review Assignment Instructions

Good paragraph structure requires a good topic sentence that connects well with the previous paragraph and communicates both the focus and organization of the paragraph (e.g., narrative, compare and contrast, process, etc.).


Post a well-written paragraph or two that effectively integrates content that you intend to expound on in subsequent paragraphs. This paragraph should serve as an introductory paragraph to a section in your literature review.


Have at least two sentences between the topic sentence and concluding sentence in each paragraph. Make sure that those sentences transition from one to another smoothly. While grammatically correct sentences are essential, the foundation of a good paragraph and ultimately, a good paper is the flow from one sentence to the next. Having a good concluding sentence that effectively concludes the paragraph in a way that is consistent with the overall organization and type of paragraph and effectively transitions the reader to the next paragraph.
