Writing Definitions

For Project 2, you need to include a glossary of the key terms that relate to the topic that you have chosen. You probably know a great deal about definitions, since most of you have been looking up words in the dictionary since you were very young. Today, we’re going to review strategies for writing definitions, look at some example glossaries, and then end with the in-class writing.


We will also talk about descriptions (pp. 366–374), so be sure you have read that section of the text.
