The Body: Use Paragraphs!Two words: Use Paragraphs! Students who don’t have paragraphs fail!The body of the essay should ALWAYS be divided into paragraphs. Never write just one long paragraph. Why? The white space makes your essay easier to read. Having paragraphs shows that you have (probably) put related ideas together. How many paragraphs in the body? Either two paragraphs (3773) or three (35553).When do I use 3773 or 35553 layouts?When do I use two paragraphs or three paragraphs in the body? When do I use 3773 or 35553? It depends on your ideas. Use TWO paragraphs (3773) if you are giving both sides of the argument or situation – one paragraph for, and one against (or the opposite). Use THREE paragraphs if you are only giving one side. So… Use TWO paragraphs (3773) to agree in one paragraph and then disagree in the second paragraph. Use TWO paragraphs (3773) to disagree in one paragraph and then agree in the second paragraph. Use THREE paragraphs (35553) if you are agreeing in all three paragraphs. Use THREE paragraphs (35553) if you are disagreeing in all three paragraphs. Finally, even if you are completely confused and your ideas are all mixed up, you should still make a paragraph. Just skip a line somewhere. Your essay will be easier to read.
