  1. 1. Reviewing the Five-Paragraph Essay: Thesis-Driven Writing
  2. 2. Recall from freshman composition:• The introduction paragraph ending in the thesis is the “promise.”• The body paragraphs are the “delivery.”• The conclusion paragraph is the time to say nicely “I was correct!”
  3. 3. Why Five Paragraphs?• Recall that the five-paragraph essay is a great format for a simple essay.• The thesis sentence at the end of the introduction paragraph will have the three points needed for the three body paragraphs in the essay.
  4. 4. The Five-Paragraph Essay Equation 1 Introduction Paragraph + 3 Body Paragraphs + 1 Conclusion Paragraph = Five Paragraphs
  5. 5. Each paragraph type has three functions:
  6. 6. Introduction Paragraph• Introduction: The Promise1. Engage attention2. Introduce topic3. End with thesis sentence that includes three main points
  7. 7. Body Paragraphs• Body Paragraphs: The Delivery1. Begin with topic sentence that supports a thesis point2. Support the topic sentence with examples, facts, and reasoning3. Close point with an overview and prepare for next paragraph
  8. 8. Conclusion Paragraph• Conclusion: “I was correct!”1. Restate thesis points in reverse order.2. Summarize why the reader should care.3. Return to the attention-engager topic from the introduction
  9. 9. Thank you! • We will hold special Collaborate sessions to go over this essay format. Watch the announcements for days and times.• Please let me know if you have additional questions (ptymon@vhcc.com).
