Have you ever heard of a hamburger paragraph? Your writing will be much more clear and attractive if you structure your paragraphs properly.
Characteristics of a good paragraph
- Topic sentence expresses the main idea of the paragraph.
- Supporting ideas (usually 3 – 6) support the topic sentence.
- Concluding sentence expresses the importance of the information in the paragraph, may summarize the supporting ideas if the paragraph is long, or provides a transition to the next paragraph of the essay.
Unity: all sentences in the paragraph directly support the topic sentence.
Coherence: all the information in the paragraph is well-organized, logically ordered and easy to follow.
