Question:

How do you write a body paragraph?

Inactive
Erica W.
Answer:

First, start with a topic sentence. It should tell readers what the paragraph is about. Next, incorporate an example. This could be a direct quote from the text or a paraphrased section. Then explain the example. This should be the largest portion of the paragraph in which you close read the example and analyze it. Finally, include a statement about the significance of the paragraph. You should connect it back to the essay's main argument. This is meant to be a guide and provides some structure. It can be modified as needed based on the specific essay or topic.

Answer:

Most commonly you will use a colon to introduce a list and you will use a semicolon to link two independent clauses. Ex: For this cake, I need: eggs, butter, sugar, and flour. Ex: Some people like to bake sweet desserts; others prefer to cook savory dishes.
