The outline and reading assignments for this course use the textbook shown below. Free-Ed.Net never requires users to purchase textbooks in order to  complete  the assignments effectively. Users occasionally want to buy the book in order to extend their study of the topics. So we make it available here.

Lesson 7
Paragraph Organization
 

The content paragraphs can be ordered in a great many different ways, but arrangements fall into the following categories. Do online searches for these terms in the context of paragraph organization:

  • Chronological order
  • Spatial order
  • Deductive order
  • Inductive order

This lesson presents some special challenges for learners who do not have access to the full textbook:  Some of the prompts for the exercises are unclear.

A Word About Challenges
for Lifelong Learners

This is one instance in the entire course where the nature of the exercises is unclear for those who do not have access to the textbook. Take a quick look at the first few exercise in each of the assignments below, and you will understand the problem. So what should be done about this:

  1. Complain that it is impossible to work exercises that require information form a source that is not available, and give up.
  2. Search the Web for someone or some references that can help.
  3. Devise a creative, unconventional strategy for resolving this "impossible" situation.

If you select item (a), you are still stuck in the traditional mode of teaching and learning, and should do some serious study about what is going on with the education/workplace revolution.

If you select item (b), you are likely to be disappointed because the issue is clouded by the fact the exercises reflect the book's unique language and  perspective. Turing to the Web isn't a bad idea in general; it just won't help much here.

If you select item (c), you are  evidently on the right track for many rewarding years of self-directed learning. Doing the "impossible" not unusual. Consider this:

You have seen that exercises throughout this course usually provide a means for checking your responses. Find a question or exercises that you do not understand, and place anything in the blank -- even you name. Whatever. One response is sufficient. Then "Submit Your Answers."  The answer sheet shows the appropriate answer. Repeat this for several different questions, and you will begin getting the idea.
