Unity and Coherence
Today , we learned two things witch we have to know before you write an essay. These are paragraph structure and Unity& Coherence. For the paragraph structure, we have to conclude a topic sentence, supporting sentence, and concluding sentence. Combination of those three becomes a paragraph. A good topic sentence should be state the main topic of the essay very clearly, and it tells reader about big idea. A good supporting sentence must be explain about the topic sentence, and have to be very specific. It can be scientific research, example, and so on. Lastly, a good concluding sentence must summarize the paragraph and bring topic sentence in different words. After I got how to make a good paragraph, we learned unity and coherence which should be concluded in paragraph. Unity is the paragraph talk about only one point. Thus, you cannot bring up many different ideas in same paragraph. For coherence, it has to be hold together, which means you cannot jump to other point suddenly. Even though we learned the meaning of unity and coherence, it is hard to combine both of them in the paragraph. Thus, we leaned how we exactly achive these two. For unity, you only can discuss one idea in one paragraph. For coherence, you can repeat key nouns, and using consistent pronouns. It is important to use transition signals as well. It has to be kind of logical and should be in order. From this lecture, we learned two important methods which we have to know when you want to write a good essay. These two are paragraph structure, and unity& coherence. If you know paragraph structure, you can write a essay even though you do not have good idea. You can just follow the structure. However, if you want to make a good essay, in the paragraph, you have to conclude unity and coherence.
