Process Paragraph is a textual chronological description (a series of steps) that, if followed, makes you accomplishing certain task or getting specific results. When you want something to happen you need to design a sequence of simple doable actions that can strictly lead you to achievement of this objective in a step-by-step manner (to create an action plan or a process).
When you need somebody else to follow your process you need to transfer your action plan to this person – this plan is called a process paragraph (in fact it is a result-oriented to-do list where items are set in chronologic order). This paragraph gives the reader clear steps or directions on how he can complete something.
In fact, a process paragraph elaborates any activity into pieces of work to be done one-by-one, so a doer can get prepared for every activity on the list beforehand. A well-elaborated process paragraph includes:
- A process heading;
- Introductory part (brief essay on the process’s purpose);
- Process body (a part where actual steps are expounded with comments and instructions);
- Conclusion (to make sure you have done everything correctly);
