A topic sentence The topic sentence is usually the first sentence of the paragraph and states the main idea of the paragraph. A good topic sentence makes a point that will be developed in the rest of the paragraph.The body of the paragraph The body of the paragraph consists of sentences that support the topic sentence. They can provide explanations, reasons, facts and examples. There can be both major and minor supporting details. Major details support the topic sentence. Minor details expand on, or provide reasons and examples of, the major details.Sentences that are linked together Sentences in a paragraph are connected to each other so that a reader can easily read through the paragraph. This can be achieved by effectively using:Transitions � words and phrases that express connections between two or more ideas. Examples of transitions include for instance, on the other hand, moreover, as a result, first, and then.Pronouns that refer to something/someone in a previous sentence. For example, My sister used to brush my hair each night. This small gesture created a strong bond. The pronoun this in this example refers to brush my hair at night, and connects the two sentences.Parallelism Parallelism can refer to using similar parts of speech (such as verb forms or nouns) in sentences. Using parallel structures makes sentences grammatically correct. In class, I practise speaking, writing, reading and to listen (should be listening).I try to write carefully and accurate (should be accurately).Parallelism can also refer to repeating a similar sentence structure in a paragraph, which can create cohesion and make a paragraph smoother and easier to read. Consider the two pairs of sentences below. Although both are grammatically correct, the second is easier to read.In class, I practise speaking and listening. I usually read and write a lot at home.In class, I practise speaking and listening. At home, I practise reading and writing.A concluding sentence A concluding sentence sums up the paragraph and appears at its end. It is used to signal that the writer has completed what he/she wanted to say.

Sure you can. (Please keep in mind that this is a framework, a skeletal construction. The actual work of the essay is yours, and asking anyone else to do the work for you would be cheating. Additionally, as a guide, the information below is intended as the bare minimum; essays are more complex, but over all not very complicated to construct. Simply do the work, and you will find just how easy it is):I). Introductory paragraphA). Introductory sentenceB). Topic sentenceC). First support of topicD). Second support of topicE). Third support of topicF). Conclusion of paragraph one/transition to next paragraph.II). First body paragraphA). Introductory sentenceB). Rewording of first support sentence from paragraph one.C). First sentence to support/defend support sentence.D). Second sentence to support/defend support sentence.E). Third sentence to support/defend support sentence.F). Conclusion of paragraph two/transition to next paragraph.III). Second Body paragraphA). Introductory sentenceB). Rewording of second support sentence from paragraph one.C). First sentence to support/defend support sentence.D). Second sentence to support/defend support sentence.E). Third sentence to support/defend support sentence.F). Conclusion of paragraph three/transition to next paragraph.IV). Third Body paragraphA). Introductory sentenceB). Rewording of third support sentence from paragraph one.C). First sentence to support/defend support sentence.D). Second sentence to support/defend support sentence.E). Third sentence to support/defend support sentence.F). Conclusion of paragraph four/transition to next paragraph.V). Concluding paragraphA). Rewording/restating of topic sentence from paragraph one.B). Rewording of conclusion of paragraph two/First body paragraphC). Rewording of conclusion of paragraph three/Second body paragraphD). Rewording of conclusion of paragraph four/Third body paragraphE). Conclusion/Summation of the EssayAt minimum, an essay is constructed of five paragraphs, with five sentences in each paragraph. That's a total of twenty-five sentences. Nothing could really be easier than writing twenty-five sentences.The secret to writing any essay though is to write about what interests you. If your topic is of no interest to you, your writing will not be interesting for anyone else. What you feel telegraphs into what you write and how you write it. Even if the topic has been assigned to you, take the time to research a way to make it your own. Find something interesting and focus on that thing. Then write.Putting off the effort serves no purpose at all but to destroy your grade; something you may care little about now, but which you will regret very much in the future.

A sentence is one or more complete thoughts or expressions. A paragraph is one or more sentences that relate any number of thoughts about a single subject or about an aspect of a subject.ANDA sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a full stop (period).What I have written above (in bold)is a sentence. A paragraph consists of several sentences. Such as below:Your computer follows a list of instructions every time it starts up, performing tasks and starting programs. By removing unnecessary items from this list, your startup time can be improved. This is an advanced step, however, and a familiarity with startup items and related troubleshooting is recommended.

Clauses are fragments of a sentence, and a sentence is more than just a clause. When a clause can stand alone as a complete sentence, it is referred to as an independent clause. A simple sentence can be a clause, but most sentences are a combination of various parts, including phrases, clauses, conjunctions, etc. See the links to some helpful sites below.

"It's" is a contraction. You could use it like in the sentence below. It's a fast horse. But "its" is not a contraction. You would use "its" like in the sentence below. Its collar is red.

A hook and thesis statement in the introduction paragraph; a body with at least three supporting paragraphs, each focused on a topic sentence; and a conclusion paragraph that wraps up the essay and closes with a clincher sentence that restates the thesis in new words.

Please don't write "which of the sentences below", if you don't provide the sentences. That just wastes everybody's time.

The space above or below a paragraph is just a space, no special term. However, the space to the left or right does have a name. It is called a margin.
