Paragraph Analysis.
Joffe, Irwin
Paragraph analysis of college textbooks is concerned with the ability of the student to discover (1) the main idea of the paragraph and (2) what the rest of the paragraph does. A method for teaching students to find main ideas and understand paragraph relationships is presented. Seven major types of thought relationships (example, explanation, cause-effect, comparison-contrast, conclusion, definition, and reiteration) are used. References are included. (DE)
