How to write body paragraphs.

           write-your-body-paragraphs Body paragraphs are the middle layers of the “sandwich” called essay. You narrate, explain, describe, and analyze in these paragraphs the topic you have chosen to write about in your essay. What you need to think over is the arguments you will provide with to make your essay credible and effective and give relevant examples to support your arguments. To cut it short, what you do is put your ideas and thoughts into body paragraphs of your essay. Thus, if you are going to discuss two issues, you need to make two body paragraphs, three issues – three body paragraphs and so on.

If to speak about the structure of the body paragraphs, it is the same despite the type of the essay you are to write. Each body paragraph begins with a topic sentence (at least in academic essays), which is an opening of sorts of the body section and the idea itself. Make sure every argument you give has an example or few to support it as long as it cannot count as relevant when no examples are given. Under every point you make, leave some free space for few lines of the point`s elaboration. Elaboration means further explanation, discussion or description of the issue.

Conclusion of an essay

How to write a conclusion for an essay.

            A way to write an effective essay is not only about its key idea or thesis statement but about its conclusion also. A conclusion is important just like introduction and body paragraphs of the essay. You put your thesis statement into the introduction section of your essay.

Conclusion is a concise summarizing of what was discussed in the essay. Try to make it memorable so a reader kept it in mind for a while after finishing reading the essay. It might be provoking, flourish verbally, catchy to cut it short. Look at it as if it was a dancing performance. You are a dancer on the paper. Your introduction is your entrance upon the stage, your body paragraphs are the dance itself and the conclusion is your graceful bend in the end.

conclusion essayJust like every performance needs to be announced about beforehand by means of mass media, make a “flier” of your essay conclusion with the help of transition. Lead your reader to a conclusion giving him/her a cue so they paid their attention to it. It is optional though if you believe it is clear enough that you are going to end your essay, then you surely may omit transition. Never begin your conclusion with the following transitions though – in conclusion, finally, in summary, to sum up, in the end… It works for presentations in the oral form though.

Each body paragraph has to begin with a topic sentence. What goes next should coincide with this sentence. Avoid confusing your reader no matter what section of the essay that is. Every piece of information needs to flow like water – nicely, smoothly, and logically. The water will never run the other way if only you point it that way by hand. Try the following, take these topics sentences and rewrite them dividing into two or three sentences. Do not summarize what you write. You will do it later, in conclusion section. Read more … »
