Piecing Together Bertrand Russell's "What I Have Lived For": An Exercise for Students Studying the Five-Paragraph Theme.
Walls, Doyle W.
Exercise Exchange, v29 n1 p45-47 Fall 1983
This exercise is intended to teach the sense of sentences and their place in the larger fabric of paragraphs as they are woven into organized papers. Based on the five-paragraph theme (introduction, three body paragraphs, and conclusion), the exercise divides "What I Haved Lived For," the prologue to "The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell, 1872-1914," into 18 sentences which are presented to students in random order. The goal is to have students put the sentences into their proper order which includes grouping them into five paragraphs. The summary states that, in order for students to successfully solve the puzzle, they must pay more attention than usual to key words on which sentences and paragraphs turn and to structural elements in sentences. The correct order of the sentences and a copy of "What I Have Lived For" are included. (DC)
