|Do Your Own » Help With Illustrate|
|Here is an example of a general statement and the many ways it could be illustrated:
General Statement: My grandmother is eccentric.
You could illustrate by providing a list of her eccentric behaviors starting with the way she eats caviar on the subway and ending with the funny hat she wears to bed.
We often use many of these forms of illustration to support a general statement, and often, we use them in combination: we might include a list of a few facts, a quotation or two, and a long exemplary narrative or story.
