The body of the essay

  1. 1. The body of the essay It includes several paragraphs supporting each of the details given in the thesis statement. Each one follows a structure or paragraph organization: a topic sentence, supporting details, and a conclusion. 1. The topic sentence. This is the main idea of the paragraph. It is usually the first sentence of the paragraph, and it is the most general sentence of the paragraph. 2. The supporting sentences. These are sentences that talk about or explain the topic sentence. They are more detailed ideas that follow the topic sentence. 3. The concluding sentence. This may be found as the last sentence of a paragraph. It can finish a paragraph by repeating the main idea or just giving a final comment about the topic.
