What are the three typical components within a paragraph of an essay?
Three typical components are the topic sentence, the body, and the concluding sentence. The topic sentence controls contains the main idea and should contain the topic - what you are writing about - as well as the controlling idea - what you have to say about the topic.

The concluding sentence should restate the topic sentence or summarize the supporting sentences ending the paragraph.
