Getting your paragraphs in shape

The body of your essay should help to present your argument or information in an organised and logical manner. After all, this is where you have the opportunity as a writer to demonstrate your understanding of a theme or topic, or present a position in a logical and organised way. 
This presentation helps to look at ways to achieve this by using authentic examples to look at:

  • how to construct a paragraph plan
  • how to write topic and bridge sentences
  • what to include in the rest of a body paragraph
  • how to achieve flow between sentences and paragraphs.
