6 The introduction The introduction should be the place to start presenting your topic. Typically, the last sentence will also include a thesis statement. A thesis statement is one sentence that clearly tells the reader what your paper will be about, and it often has a point to prove.

7 Body paragraphs Think of three items dealing with your topic that youd like to discuss. The first item will be your first body paragraph. Now, come up with two or three examples that have to do with the item. Use details to make the examples clear. Continue this pattern for the second and third body paragraphs.

8 Conclusion The conclusion is the place to sum up your essay and re-state your thesis statement in different words. New information does not belong in the conclusion.
