Basic Paragraph StructureImpressive Writing Is Clear Thinking Made Visible • A well-developed paragraph is two or more SEE sets expanded; however, you need to use a TOPIC SENTENCE at the beginning and a CONCLUDING SENTENCE at the end. • Topic Sentence-Statement that clarifies your focus for the paragraph • SEE Set-Statement/example/explanation of your 1st piece of evidence • SEE Set-Statement/example/explanation of your 2nd piece of evidence • Concluding Sentence-Commentary that ties these SEE sets back to your topic sentence.
Final Thoughts Once you have drafted your body paragraphs, ask yourself…Can your audience SEE your ideas? Remember that quality writing allows the reader to SEE what you are saying. Be sure to connect your SEE sets using transitional words and/or phrases to make smooth transitions—this will help your points show relationships and flow together nicely.
