Chapter 16 Techniques for Writing
Chapter 17 Topics for Writing
The two chapters in Part Three help you to look at the larger contexts in which your sentences operate. While the chapters in Parts One and Two open with brief writing assignments, the chapters in Part Three ask you to think more carefully about what you're doing when you organize a composition. Chapter 16 focuses on specific techniques for increasing the clarity of your paragraphs, and Chapter 17 challenges you to write longer works for larger audiences.

As you work on assignments in Part Three, you may find it useful to print out and keep close at hand the Sentence Sense bookmark. It will remind you how to help another writer with peer responses, and it will help you edit your work to avoid errors that could distract your readers from the flow of your thoughts.
