The Body

Two words: Use Paragraphs! Students who don't have paragraphs fail!  

The body of the essay should ALWAYS be divided into paragraphs. Never write just one long paragraph. Why?

  • The white space makes your essay easier to read.
  • Having paragraphs shows that you have (probably) put related ideas together. 

How many paragraphs in the body? Either two paragraphs (3773) or three (35553).


 

When do I use 3773 or 35553 layouts?

When do I use two paragraphs or three paragraphs in the body? When do I use 3773 or 35553? It depends on your ideas.

  • Use TWO paragraphs (3773) if you are giving both sides of the argument or situation -  one paragraph for, and one against (or the opposite). 

  • Use THREE paragraphs if you are only giving one side

So...

  3773 3773   35553 35553
Intro Intro
Para 1 Para 1
Para 2 Para 2
Conclusion Para 3
Conclusion
  • Use TWO paragraphs (3773) to agree in one paragraph and then disagree in the second paragraph. 

  • Use TWO paragraphs (3773) to disagree in one paragraph and then agree in the second paragraph. 

  • Use THREE paragraphs (35553) if you are agreeing in all three paragraphs. 

  • Use THREE paragraphs (35553) if you are disagreeing in all three paragraphs. 

Finally, even if you are completely confused and your ideas are all mixed up, you should still make a paragraph. Just skip a line somewhere. Your essay will be easier to read.
