How to Write Effective Paragraphs

Writing Effective Paragraphs

 

Writing effective paragraphs is easy once you know what to do. Use the “Point-Proof-Explanation-Summary” method to paragraph writing and watch how quickly your writing improves! 

 

An effective paragraph includes:

 

  • a topic sentence that expresses the main point of the paragraph.
  • a piece of proof, evidence, details, or examples to support your topic sentence. 
  • an explanation where you explain how the proof reinforces the point you are trying to make
  • another piece of  proof, evidence, details, or examples to support your original topic sentence. 
  • another explanation where you explain how the second proof reinforces the original point you are trying to make
  • A summary sentence that sums up the main point found in the topic sentence.

 

A well written paragraph consists of 5 to 7 sentences and contains three parts: a topic sentence, a body, and a closing sentence. 

 

 

 

Example:

 

      Sony’s Playstation 4 has taken home videogame systems into the future and beyond. For example, the Playstation 4 offers games with next generation graphics thanks to a super-charged processor. Next, it allows users to begin playing a game even as it is being downloaded. Lastly, the Playstation 4 allows users to use smart-phones or a tablet as a second screen for enhanced game-play. The Sony PS4 gaming platform is the future of video-gaming, but available today for serious home gamers.
