Underline key words. Write related words - turn nouns into verbs, verbs into nouns, adjectives intoadverbs, etc. Write opposite words, similar words, synonyms, etc.Circle and highlight the graph. Use arrows. Make notes. Circle the biggest, the smallest. stable orunchanging parts, sudden increases, etc.Identify trends. A trend is the overall idea of the graphwhat is happening/what happenedthe main change over timethe most noticeable thing about the graphthe pattern over time
 A chart is a diagram that makes information easier to understand byshowing how two or more sets of data are related. A pie chart is a circle divided into segments. It is usually used to show  percentages. A bar chart is a diagram that makes information easier to understand byshowing how two or more sets of data are related. A bar chart is dividedinto columns. A graph is a diagram, usually a line or a curve, which shows how two setsof numbers or measurements are related. A table is a set of facts and figures arranged in columns and rows. A tableis a very useful way of organizing numerical information.

Keep alternating.Paragraph 2: Trend 2Start with a sentence with no number. “City size increased sharply over the period.”Give an example (sentence with number) and perhaps another exampleConclusionFinish by repeating the main trends, or identify a second trend. Use different vocabulary.Don't have any numbers in the conclusion (you could use words like "most", "themajority" "a minority", "a small number").Don’t give an opinion.Some don’ts when writing about graphsDon’t describe the X and Y axis. Give the information.Don’t write about everything on the graph. Pick the biggest, the smallest, the mainpoints, the main trends.
