Body Paragraphs

The body is where you prove the point that you have made in your introduction and thesis.

Here are a few quick tips for your body paragraphs:
  1. Use topic sentences. A topic sentence is like a "mini-thesis" that sets the tone for what you be talking about in your paragraph.  Be sure to use them and stick to them.
  2. Get to your points quickly.
  3. Give source evidence for your points. These could be quotes, statistics, sayings, etc. 
  4. Don't write about irrelevant topics or give irrelevant details.
  5. Use transition words to help your paragraphs "flow" together seamlessly.
