    • Introduction
      • A paragraph is a group of sentences or a single sentence that forms a unit.
      • It is a group of related sentences which express an idea.
      • It may express an opinion, provide information through the use of facts and details, tell a story or simply describe a person, a place, an object or a feeling.
    • Main Idea
      • Before you begin to determine the composition of your paragraphs, you must first understand what the controlling idea is in your specific piece of writing..
      • What is the main point that you are trying to convey to your reader?
      • Choose information that will help to support and perpetuate the central idea through out the entire paper.
    • Generating Ideas
      • Who is my targeted audience?
      • What do I want to say?
      • Why am I writing it?
