PARAGRAPH WRITING

Paragraphs can be described as a collection of sentences. These sentences combine to express a specific idea, main point, and topic and so on a number of paragraphs are then combined to write a report, an essay, or even a book. In general, the purpose of a paragraph is to express one point, idea or opinion.

G.R. Bathla Publications Pvt. Ltd., Delhi

1.Beginning: Introduce your idea.

2.Middle: Explain your Idea.

3.End: Make your point again, the transition to next, paragraph.

Here is a paragraph is taken from an essay on various strategies required for an overall improvement of student performance:

Students require more recreational time in order to better focus on lessons in class. In fact, studies have shown that students who enjoy a recess of more than 45 minutes consistently score better on tests immediately following the recess period. The clinical analysis further suggests that physical exercise greatly improves the ability to focus on academic materials. Longer periods of the recess are clearly required to allow students the best possible chances of success in their studies. Clearly, physical exercise is just one of the necessary ingredients for improving student scores on standardized tests.

There are four sentence types used to construct a paragraph:

Topic Sentence

One sentence which states your idea, point or opinion. This sentence should use a strong verb and make a bold statement.

For example, Students require more recreational time in order to better focus on lessons in class.

Note: Notice the strong verb ‘require’ which is a call to action. A weaker form of this sentence might be: I think students probably need more recreational time … This weaker form is inappropriate for a topic sentence.

Supporting Sentence

 Supporting sentences (notice the plural) provide explanations and support for the topic sentence (main idea) of your paragraph.

 For example: In fact, studies have shown that students who enjoy a recess of more than 45 minutes consistently score better on tests immediately following the recess period. The clinical analysis further suggests that physical exercise greatly improves the ability to focus on academic materials.

 Note: Supporting sentences provide evidence for your topic sentence. Supporting sentences that include facts statistics and logical reasoning are much more convincing than simple statements of opinion.

Concluding Sentence

 The concluding sentence restates the main idea (found in your topic sentence) and reinforces the point or opinion.

For example, Longer periods of the recess are clearly required to allow students the best possible chances of success in their studies.

 Note: Concluding sentences repeat the main idea of your paragraph in different words.

Transitional Sentence

The transitional sentence prepares the reader for the following paragraph.

 For example: Clearly, physical exercise is just one of the necessary ingredients for improving student scores on standardized tests.

Note: Transitional sentences should help readers logically understand the connection between one of the current main idea point or opinion and the main idea of your next paragraph. In this instance. The phrase ingredients …’ prepares the reader for the next paragraph which will discuss another necessary ingredient for success.
