SAMPLE BODY PARAGRAPH (FROM HANDOUT) (1) The most important theme of The Ugly Duckling is that narrow-minded people see differences as ugliness. (2) For example, at the beginning of the story, the other ducklings do not like the ugly duckling because he is small, not good at waddling, and much better at swimming than they are. (3) This shows that their reasons for shunning the ugly duckling are based only upon the ways in which he is different from them. (4) This shows that narrow-minded people refuse to accept others who are not similar to

themselves. (5) In addition, towards the end of the story, the ugly duckling sees his reflection and meets his swan family, realizing that he is neither ugly nor a duckling. (6) This shows that although he might have been seen as an ugly duckling, he is, in truth, a beautiful swan. (7) This shows that a person who compares himself to the wrong group of people is likely to see himself as ugly and inferior, while if he decides to be open-minded and accepting of others, he will eventually discover the truth about himself. (8) The main lesson that this story teaches is that people who dislike others because they are different are needlessly prejudiced. CONCLUSION PARAGRAPH (4-5 SENT.)
