The first sentence of this paragraph should include the reverse hook which ties in with the transitional hook at the end of the second paragraph.The last sentence in this paragraph should include a transitional concluding hook that signals the reader that this is the final major point being made in this paper.
The first sentence of this paragraph should include the "reverse hook" which ties in with the transitional hook at the end of the introductory paragraph.
The topic for this paragraph should be in the first or second sentence.
All paragraphs should be focused: they should discuss only one major point.
That point should connect with the overall focus of the essay (as described in the thesis statement).
Body paragraphs will often begin with a summary of the controlling idea: the point (also known as the topic sentence).
The point (or topic) sentence summarises the paragraph in the same way that the thesis statement summarises the whole essay.Illustrations use logic to fully explain the main point raised in the topic sentence.It is not enough to just explain an idea, however: you need to show that outside evidence supports it as well.The last sentence of this paragraph must also contain a transitional "hook" which moves the reader to the first paragraph of the body of the paper.The first paragraph of the body should contain the strongest argument, most significant example, cleverest illustration, or an obvious beginning point.It may also discuss the significance of your explanation.Remember that body paragraphs do not exist in isolation. Transitions show the connections between paragraphs themselves, and the connections between the paragraphs and the overall focus of the essay. Transitions are essential for maintaining momentum in your essay and showing the reader how all the ideas fit together.This hook also leads into the last, or concluding, paragraph.This paragraph should include the following: Stephen King, creator of such stories as Carrie and Pet Sematary, stated that the Edgar Allan Poe stories he read as a child gave him the inspiration and instruction he needed to become the writer that he is.For information on the right and wrong ways to do this, see .The explanation should clarify how the reader should interpret your illustrative evidence and also how the paragraph's controlling idea works to support the thesis statement.
