    Body Paragraphs and Conclusion Worksheet Instructions: Copy and paste the following text into a document or create a document that contains the same information. Writing Prompt How have these two authors expressed their relationships with nature? After reading and analyzing "The Calypso Borealis," an essay by John Muir, and William Wordsworth's poem "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," write an essay in which you describe how each author views nature and answer the question. Support your discussion with evidence from the text. 1. Copy and paste the introduction of your essay. If your instructor suggested any revisions to your introduction, please make your revisions and include in the space below. Hook: Nature is something that everyone needs to survive but still seems to escape from in our daily lives. Bridge: For John Muir and William Wordsworth they sought nature out and were not disappointed by the outcome. Both these men went on a journey through nature and found some very beautiful flowers on their way. Not wanting to keep it to themselves they both wrote about their experiences. Thesis: John Muir, who wrote “Calypso Borealis” in essay form, and William Wordsworth, who wrote “I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud” as a poem, both expressed their positive relationships with nature in both their journeys using diction, syntax, and tone. Write 2. Using what you have learned about evidence, explanation, quotations, and paraphrase, write your body paragraphs in the space below. You will need to include at least one of each of the following: a direct quotation introduced with a complete sentence and a colon a direct quotation introduced with a signaling phrase and a comma a direct quotation that is introduced and explained in one sentence a paraphrased example an embedded quotation Locate 3. Within the body paragraphs of your essay, locate a direct quotation that is introduced with a complete sentence and a colon. Copy and paste it here. Be sure to include the entire sentence that contains the quotation as well as the explanation sentence(s) that come after it. Specifically, John Muir wrote his story in essay form because he wanted every last detail in the story just as he saw it, for example when he quotes the old lady in this way: "Mony a puir body has been lost in that muckle, cauld, dreary bog and never been found" because he wanted you to know everything he experienced down to the accent. 4. Within the body paragraphs of your essay, locate a direct quotation that is introduced with a signaling phrase and a comma. Copy and paste it here. Be sure to include the entire sentence that contains the quotation as well as the explanation sentence(s) that come after it. In “Calypso Borealis”, Muir said in the story that he was “wading through bogs and swamps.” 5. Within the body paragraphs of your essay, locate a direct quotation that is introduced and explained in one sentence. Copy and paste it here. In “Calypso Borealis”, Muir said in the story that he was “wading through bogs and swamps.” Meaning he was walking difficulty through bogs and swamps when he suddenly stumbled upon a beautiful white flower. 6. Within the body paragraphs of your essay, locate one paraphrased example and copy and paste it here. 7. Within the body paragraphs of your essay, locate one embedded quotation and copy and paste it here. Muir thought that Calypso Borealis was a “lovely” when describing his flower and every time Wordsworth thought about the dandelions his “heart filled with pleasure”. 8. Using techniques learned in this lesson, write the conclusion to your essay in the space below. John Muir and William Wordsworth both wrote very beautiful stories about their experiences with nature. Although how it happened in both stories and how they wrote them differed, they both told very similar and wonderful about nature. Their stories give us an idea of what’s to come when venturing out into the wilderness and we should definitely try it for ourselves. 9. How did you connect your introduction and your conclusion? (Did you use a similar technique, repetition of a significant word or phrase, etc.?) Explain. 10. Copy and paste the words or sentence that signals closure of your essay. Their stories give us an idea of what’s to come when venturing out into the wilderness and we should definitely try it for ourselves. 11. Copy and paste the sentences that synthesize your ideas. Remember, synthesis combines the main ideas of your essay AND comments on the significance of those ideas. 12. Copy and paste the sentences that answer the question from the prompt: What conclusion or implications can you draw? (It is OK if you have these sentences as a part of your synthesis or challenge to your audience. Include them here as well. It is also OK if these sentences are separate from those two elements.) 13. Copy and paste the sentences from your conclusion that challenge your audience to think, feel, or do something.

    this is my essay Hook: Nature is something that everyone needs to survive but still seems to escape from in our daily lives. Bridge: For John Muir and William Wordsworth they sought nature out and were not disappointed by the outcome. Both these men went on a journey through nature and found some very beautiful flowers on their way. Not wanting to keep it to themselves they both wrote about their experiences. Thesis: John Muir, who wrote “Calypso Borealis” in essay form, and William Wordsworth, who wrote “I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud” as a poem, both expressed their positive relationships with nature in both their journeys using diction, syntax, and tone. II. Topic Sentence: In both these pieces written by John Muir and William Wordsworth, they both explained their personal journeys through nature. In “Calypso Borealis”, Muir said in the story that he was “wading through bogs and swamps.” Meaning he was walking difficulty through bogs and swamps. When he suddenly stumbled upon a beautiful white flower. Just like when Wordsworth wrote,“I wandered lonely as a cloud,” and also stumbling across a vast group of dandelions in “I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud.” Even though the how and why of finding the flowers was different both writers had very similar experiences and views when encountering the unique flowers. Muir thought that Calypso Borealis was a “lovely” when describing his flower and every time Wordsworth thought about the dandelions his “heart filled with pleasure”. They both seemed to be overjoyed and very happy after seeing the flowers they talked about in their stories. III. Although there were some similarities, there were also a few differences between John Muir’s “ Calypso Borealis” and William Wordsworth’s “I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud.” John Muir decided that his story was best told in normal essay form but William Wordsworth choice was to write his story in the form of a poem. John Muir wrote his story in essay form because he wanted every last detail in the story just as he saw it, but Wordsworth wanted his story to be told yet left to imagination and feeling. Other than the main between the two stories like the way it was told and what happened in it exactly, both Muir and Wordsworth had alternative reasons to writing their stories the way they did. Muir’s story showed Naturalism in the way he connected with nature on all levels, positively and negatively, and the way he studied the many different parts of it, whereas Wordsworth’s story showed Romanticism in the way he described his personal emotions and left the experience to the audience’s imagination.

    I'll help with 6, a paraphrased example is when you are using your own words from another story so it won't be plagiarized. Do you see any in your essay hook? (I hope that made sense)

    So on number 11, it is asking you this, this is kinda tricky but i'll do the best I can :) Copy and paste the sentences that synthesize your ideas. Remember, synthesis combines the main ideas of your essay AND comments on the significance of those ideas. - I searched up what synthesizing is and I have found this definition, combine (a number of things) into a coherent whole. As it is saying in the question, you are combining your ideas together. So copy and paste from your hook, your ideas and there you go. I hope it helped :)
