Internet Killed the Paragraph

… wie man an die­sem – eigent­lich schö­nen – Text über den Ame­ri­can Dream (Tipp von Lutz Szem­kus) stu­die­ren kann. Statt einer „unity of thought and topic“ mit einem ein­lei­ten­den „topic sen­tence“ nur noch frag­men­tier­te Ein­zel­sät­ze. Dass so ein „Text“ auch noch von der BBC kommt, ist beson­ders bit­ter.

Eine schö­ne Übung am PC wäre den „Text“ in ein Word / Wri­ter Doku­ment zu kopie­ren und die Schü­ler die iso­lier­ten Ein­zel­sät­ze wie­der zu sinn­vol­len Absät­zen zusam­men­fü­gen zu las­sen. Wel­che Sät­ze gehö­ren zusam­men? Wo beginnt etwas Neu­es? Ent­spre­chen die Zwi­schen­über­schrif­ten (ggf. raus­las­sen) jeweils einem neu­en Absatz? …

It would, the­re­fo­re, seem oppor­tu­ne to begin this essay on essay wri­ting with a swift recollec­tion of exac­t­ly what tho­se requi­re­ments are.
