How to construct your essay
Paragraphs show when you have come to the end of one main point and the beginning of the next. A paragraph is a group of sentences related to aspects of the same point. Within each individual paragraph an idea is introduced and developed through the subsequent sentences within that paragraph.
Everyone finds it easier to read a text that is broken into short paragraphs.
You should construct your essay
as a sequence of distinct points set out in a rational order.
Each sentence and paragraph should follow logically from the one before and it is important that you do not force your reader to make the connections. Always make these connections clear signposting where the argument or discussion is going next.
Although the points you are making may seem obvious to you, can they be more clearly and simply stated?
It is also worth bearing in mind that the marker of your work may have a lot of other, similar pieces of work to mark and assess. Try to make yours easy to read and follow make it stand out for the right reasons!
