From Jeff Layne
Student Writing Tutor, CSU, Chico Student Learning Center
Brooke Hespeler, a Chico State senior majoring in English, explains how to write better essays and research papers by focusing on paragraph structure. She identifies four aspects to paragraph development: every sentence in the paragraph is centered around one idea; the paragraph is clearly related to the thesis of the paper; the paragraph is well-developed; and the sentences within the paragraph are arranged in a logical manner and follow a definite plan. At the end of the presentation, Ms. Hespeler provides information about the writing assistance services available to all Chico State students at the Student Learning Center.
