The graphic organizer that you create doesn’t need to have boxed outlines or arrows, but it should show your organization. Choose one
of the following topics, and divide it into classes.
Sports, either general or types of fans n Genres of movies,
television shows, or video games
Animals, either general or one specific breed
Cultural or family traditions n Random acts of kindness you experienced or performed As an example, the following is a graphic
organizer for the topic “Types of Food.”

and 1.25-inch margins for the left and right sides of the document. Each page must have a properly formatted header containing your
name, student number, exam number, page number, mailing address, and e-mail address (see page 6 for an example). Name each document
using your student number first, then the six-digit lesson number, and finally your last name (for example, 23456789_050177 Doe). Save
each as “File Type: Rich Text Format,” regardless of your wordprocessing program. 108 English Composition Title: Types of Food Topic
announcement: Restaurants Introduction Background: It is easy to choose healthy options when eating out. Thesis statement: Most
restaurants, including fast food, casual and fine dining, make it easy for patrons to eat out without sacrificing a healthy diet. Body
Paragraphs Fast Food Characteristic 1: not known for healthy choices but they are on the menu; light or low-calorie choices Example 1:
plain burgers – no cheese; side salad rather than fries Characteristic 2: There are options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Example 2:
McDonald’s has Egg White Delite, oatmeal, salads, grilled chicken Characteristic 3: Menus list calorie counts and other nutritional
information Example 3: McDonald’s, Panera Casual Characteristic 1: more variety, wider menu, allow substitutions for healthier options
Example 1: choice of sides – baked potato instead of French fries; salad rather than cream/bisque soup Characteristic 2: look up
nutritional information online if it’s not listed on the menu; other indicators for healthy options. Example 2: Long Horn Steak House
lists calorie counts on menu and notes healthy options with special characters Characteristic 3: many restaurants have separate
healthy-option menus Example 3: Cheesecake Factory has a “Skinnylicious” menu, Denny’s has a “Fit Fare” menu, and Red Lobster has a
“Lighthouse” menu. Fine Dining Characteristic 1: Smaller portions but richer foods/sauces; more courses Example 1: Less likely to
overeat; smaller portions give patrons a taste of many foods; more portion control Characteristic 2: No nutritional info available;
patrons need some knowledge of nutrition – calories/fat in foods – to stick to diet. Example 2: Better quality food, typically organic
and non-GMO. This makes the food at fine dining restaurants better for you than similar options at casual restaurants. Characteristic
3: A la carte menus let patrons choose their own main course and sides. Example 3: appetizers optional; salad; choose healthier cuts of
meat or have seafood – salmon, tuna; Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Le Bernardin for seafood Conclusion: Restaurants provide something for
everyone, no matter their preference or dietary needs. Lesson 6 109 Submitting Your Assignment To submit the assignment, follow these
