Process Analysis Make sure you have read all the lectures and assigned readings from your text prior to beginning this assignment. (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) Objectives: Use a variety of planning strategies. Employ effective narrowing strategies to draft an effective thesis. Effectively and logically organize body/topical paragraphs. Recognize the importance of coherence to the audience and incorporate effective and appropriate coherence devices to meet this need. Compose paragraphs that meet the standards of academic writing. Assignment: In this assignment, you will choose a process to analyze and to describe to your audience. Remember that you need to describe the process in a step by step fashion. Feel free to describe any process you wish, exciting or mundane, serious or humorous. I have had people write on such varied topics as how to change the kitty litter box to how to wash a load of clothes, to how to clean a bathroom (see sample), to how to make good grades. Choose something simple that you know a lot about and that you can easily explain. Remember to break down the steps and then to break down each step into its component steps. Creating a personal outline can help you to stay focused. Topic Choices: Choose a topic that you know well, not one which you need to research. If you choose to describe a process which occurs naturally, such as how pimples form or how voice-recognition software works, then you need to know enough about it to NOT research.
