For the practice assignment, students will use points-of-reference and transitional words to compare or contrast two used trucks. See the Comparing and Contrasting section under Developing Paragraphs/Strategies for Developing the Main Point in . Consider the following scenario when comparing or contrasting the two used trucks: Justin has accepted a new job as a master gardener with a landscape design and tree nursery business. The new position will require Justin to use his own vehicle to transport trees, shrubs, and flowers as well as large quantities of mulch, decorative stones, and gardening equipment. Justin currently owns a truck, but it is old and needs a new engine and transmission. So, Justin decides to buy a reliable used truck that is in good condition rather than repair the old truck. Justin has $2,000 in savings plus the trade-in value to use as the down payment to purchase a truck. At a used car lot, Justin narrows the choices to two trucks. How should Justin make a decision between the trucks? What requirements or points-of-reference are most important? To complete the practice assignment, there are five points-of-reference as shown in Table 3. The sentences for this assignment are provided. The assignment is to reorder, rewrite, and combine the sentences using transitional words. Use these sentences for the points-of-reference chart and paragraph: The practice paragraph should demonstrate good structure through the use of a topic sentence, several coherent supporting sentences, and a concluding sentence. Refer to Section W-4b, Developing Paragraphs, particularly the section on Using examples, in . Practice Assignments are worth 20 points each and do not have a rubric. A well-formed, compare or contrast paragraph that demonstrates impeccable use of grammar, spelling, and punctuation will earn maximum points.
