| The Five Paragraph Essay
To provide the writer with an opportunity for discussion of an issue.
To provide the reader with a clear presentation of point of view and support for that point of view.
Begin with a general statement of fact.
Provide the reader with a thesis statement; something you intend to prove.
Briefly outline three ways you support your thesis.
Use separate body paragraphs for each point.
Clearly describe how your point serves to prove your thesis to be true.
Finish each body paragraph with a reference to your thesis statement that clearly shows you have proven the point you intend to make.
Begin with a statement of fact like the one in the introduction; this cues the reader that you are wrapping things up.
Restate your thesis and the three points you raised in a summarizing sentence or two to prove consistency.
End with a universal statement that demonstrates your insight about the broader social implications of the issue.
Statements of the obvious - My purpose is…
This essay will…
Casual conversations with the reader - Well let me tell you…
And that’s the end of my awesome essay.
` Hello, what was that guy thinking?
Isn’t that the point?
The key to a great essay is having the range of vocabulary that allows you to repeat yourself without being redundant, repetitive or incessantly similar.
