Paragraph

English writting
Paragraph’s Structure
• Main idea (Topic sentence)
– Supporting sentence
• Example
– Supporting sentence
– Conclusion
Topic sentence
• Serves to
• 1 it functions as the thesis of your paragraph
• 2 it pushes the thesis of your essay forward
and presents an arguable point.
• It is usually the first or second sentence of a
paragraph. Occasionally, it is place at the end
of the paragraph, but is preferable to not do it
Supporting sentence
• Makes your claim digestible.
• A balance between:
– evidence that is provided (facts, quotations,
summary of events/plot, etc.)
– and analysis (interpretation of evidence).
Concluding Observation
• It closes your paragraph with an observation
that is more than just summary of the
contents of the paragraph.
• It provides a final idea that leads to the next
step in your argument.
• The observation is usually the last or second-
to-last sentence in the paragraph.
Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I like it
because on Sunday, I watch football. On other days, I
also get to watch football but not all day. There are
other sports on other days to watch on TV. Sunday
lunch is a favorite of mine because I eat with my
father in front of the TV. All the other days, I have to
eat at the table which is less fun. Some days my dad
doesn’t make it home from work until after I’m in
bed. Some weeks my dad travels, and I don’t see
him for several days. The highlight of the day is
when we watch the Dolphins play. Dad and I get so
excited, we yell and cheer together. The thing that I
like to do best in the world is watch TV with my dad.

• If English is your second language, when you
read, you may find many words you don’t
understand. It is not good to look up every
new word in the dictionary. If you look up
every word, your reading is interrupted. You
lose track of the ideas. Also, you do not
remember the new words. When you read
them again, you often just have to look them
up again in the dictionary.
