Presentation of Introductory Paragraph

 Today, all the groups must present their introductory paragraph. For me, all the groups doing a great job instead there are many mistakes. It’s okay because we can learn from mistakes. My group which is Nabila, Amirah, Edlina and me has presented one of the types of hook which is ‘current event’. After we have survey on the internet, we choose ‘Baby Dumping’ to write an essay. As a result, this is our introductory paragraph and the other from class A as well as doing the same thing:

According to New Straits Times, the latest case was a dead baby girl found floating in a sewage tank behind a girls' college hostel in remote Kelantan two days ago. The decomposed body was found by a group of boys playing nearby. Two more abandoned baby cases were reported that day in Malacca and Kuala Lumpur. This situation can be caused by many factors which surround us. Thus, baby dumping is caused by negative social relationship, peer pressure, modern technology and lack of knowledge in individual self.

In 2007, the Star newspaper reported that an IPTS student in Segamat has dumped a baby in a plastic bag into a big drain. The baby which his umbilical cord is still intact was found by a good Samaritan. Two years later, Malaysia was shocked again by the same news: A fisherman had accidently fished a black plastic bag which he taught it was an ordinary plastic bag that had been littered by the irresponsible persons. He then opened the plastic bag out of curiosity and then was horrified for what he saw. A decayed baby!. This news proved that the statistics of social problems are increasing up until now. Thus, to ace these social problems, one should have a strong moral value, parents should play their roles effectively and one should use media wisely.

Then, Miss Zu summarize about non- linear text to linear text. Some of us understand and not about that. She will explain more about it on Tuesday.
