A story, essay or other narrative, is usually assigned three parts. Following this three-part outline helps to organize the writer's/teller's thoughts, as well as the making things clearer, easier to follow for the recipient. The three parts are generaly condidered to be: Introduction (Beginning) Body (middle, which details the introductory statement) Close ( end, which sums things up) Most educators prefer this methodology enactment (another, earlier question) when grading papers. Follow instructions. You can find many more things like this in such publications as the MLA (Modern Language Association) Stylebook, and the classic, E.B. White's, Elements of Style
