Read these points to know the organization and types of essays:

  • The introductory statement could be an anecdote, quotation, saying, description, striking statistic, a fact that will lead to the thesis statement.
  • The main idea of the essay is stated in a single sentence called the thesis statement.
  • Supporting paragraphs make up the main body of the essay. They develop the main idea of your essay.
  • A topic sentence is the sentence that explains what the paragraph is mainly about. Each paragraph should have one topic sentence.
  • We use special transition words to link your supporting paragraphs together. Here are some transition words- first, second, third, however, even though, nevertheless, therefore, in addition to, as a result of, consequently, furthermore, also, despite, etc.

Read the following sample essay:

The first paragraph introduces the topic. It often starts with a definition, an example, a saying or quotation. It tells the reader what information about the topic you are going to include in your essay

A school is a place where we go to get education. The name of my school is Divine Grace Academy. It is a secondary school. It was established in 1989. Our school has nice buildings.It provides excellent education.

The mid paragraphs contain ideas that describe the main idea of the essay topic. The ideas are grouped into various paragraphs. Each paragraph should have a topic sentence that tells us what the paragraph is going to be about.

Our school has sufficient buildings and playgrounds. There are twenty classrooms and we have separate rooms for science labs, libraries and language labs. There is a big playground where we play games and sports. There is also a small garden where we plant various flowers. Our school provides quality education. All our teachers are highly qualified and competent. They are very friendly and teach us nicely. They also help us for extracurricular activities. We take part in various extra activities like debate contest, quiz contest, essay competition, games and sports, one act play, etc.

The last paragraph or concluding paragraph ends the essay. It simply reminds the reader what they have learnt in the essay in brief.

To sum up, our school has been a good place for education and all the students and parents are satisfied from its infrastructure and its ways of imparting an all-round education
