    Hello dear Lee,

    We usually start writing essays Like this:

    The Five Paragraph Essay

    Although  more advanced academic papers are a category all their own, the basic high school or college essay has the following standardized, five paragraph structure:

    Paragraph 1: Introduction
    Paragraph 2: Body 1
    Paragraph 3: Body 2
    Paragraph 4: Body 3
    Paragraph 5: Conclusion

    All the best

    Suggested formats for independent writing in Argumentative and Persuasive Essays:

    FOR and AGAINST:

    You will be given a topic such as;
    Do you agree or disagree?
    ' Living in big cities is better than living in small villages.' Use specific reasons and examples to support your ideas.

    Start writing taking the tips below into consideration:)

    The introductory paragraph:
    In this paragraph, you are expected to write a few topic- related sentences and your thesis statement indicating where you stand.

    The body: 
    Each paragraph within the body elaborates on one major topic/ reason. The main topic is the topic sentence. It is recommended that you should write two bodies supported by evidence.

    The conclusion:
    In this paragraph, summarize what you have written before, restating your ideas.( avoid repetition)

    The introduction and the conclusion paragraphs must be related to each other. Your last sentence could be a wish, a warning or a suggestion.
