Note:  An essay can be structured in
many ways.  The five paragraph essay is
the most basic essay structure.  Because
the required length for your essays in this course is 500 words, the five
paragraph model best suits your writing objectives.  However, do not allow these guidelines to
limit your writing; if you wish to write more than three body paragraphs to
illustrate your paper’s thesis, then do so. 
The guidelines that follow can be applied to all the essays you write
for this course.  Your essays should vary
in type (i.e. descriptive; comparison/contrast; argumentative), and
not so much in structure. 

THE FIVE PARAGRAPH (500 word) ESSAY OUTLINED

TITLE:  The title should reflect the
main idea of the essay.  The title should
be concise and interesting. 

PARAGRAPH 1:  Introduction

     The essay’s introduction should consist of
a minimum of five sentences.  The
introductory paragraph should begin with a general statement that reflects the
essay’s topic.  The paragraph will likely
include transitional sentences or background information sentences that will
then lead the reader into the writer’s purpose – the thesis statement.  The thesis statement is what the writer will
prove throughout his/her essay in the body paragraphs.  The thesis should include a plan of
development; it should consist of the writer’s position on the paper topic and
the three points the writer will describe in the essay’s body to prove his/her
position (Thesis example:  The hiking trip was a disaster because (1) it
rained the whole time, (2) we lost our camping equipment, (3) and our
guide broke his leg.)

BODY PARAGRAPHS 2,3,& 4:

     Each of the body paragraphs should begin
with a topic sentence.  If the writer has
used the three point thesis model, writing each body paragraph’s topic sentence
should be easy.  The first body
paragraph’s topic sentence, for example, should reflect the first point in the thesis
statement (refer to the above thesis example – i.e. The torrential rains ruined the trip.).  It then becomes the writer’s task to develop
and support the point – these are your body paragraph’s supporting
sentences.  Once the writer effectively
illustrates the first point, he/she will then proceed to the second point and
follow the same guidelines for paragraph development (point two will introduce
body paragraph two, and point three will introduce paragraph three). 

PARAGRAPH 5:  The Conclusion

     In this paragraph, the writer’s task is to
“complete” the essay.  The function of
the conclusion is to provide closure for the reader.  The writer will remind the reader of his/her
thesis by reviewing the points made in the essay’s body (Note: be careful not
to restate the point’s exactly).  To
close the last paragraph, the writer may include his/her final perspective on
the essay’s topic.
