What are some tips on writing a good body paragraph?

A body paragraph is a paragraph that comes between the introduction and the conclusion. Body paragraphs explain or support the main idea of the essay.

In order to write a good body paragraph, you must first have all your facts. If you have not done this already, write out a list or outline telling every fact that you know about the topic or main idea of the essay. Do your research and look up the facts if you need to!

Make each fact into a complete sentence and check for punctuation and grammar.

Write out each body paragraph using one fact as the basis; each paragraph will give one fact and explain about that fact. Make sure that the paragraph makes sense and supports your main idea.
