Five-paragraph Essay Format/Process Analysis Paper
Paragraph One - Introduction - Attention grabber/five sentences/ thesis (last sentence) - A thesis proves or supports your essay (three key points when writing a five-paragraph essay). A thesis is the main message that the author is trying to relay to the audience/readers.
Paragraph Two - Nine Sentences/first key point
Sentence one - Topic sentence/main point of the entire paragraph/key point #1
Sentence two - Subtopic #1 supporting key point #1
Sentence three - Support subtopic #1
Sentence four - Support subtopic #1
Sentence five - Subtopic #2 supporting key point #1
Sentence six - Support Subtopic #2 supporting key point #1 (topic sentence)
Sentence seven - Subtopic #3 supporting key point #3
Sentence eight - Support subtopic #3 supporting key point of paragraph
Sentence nine - Transition/flow/incorporate key point #1 with key point #2
Paragraph Three - Same as paragraph two with the exception that you come up with another key point(number two).
Paragraph Four - Same as paragraph three with the exception that you come up with another key point(number three). The last sentence of paragraph four does not necessarily need transition. A concluding statement for paragraph four as sentence number nine will work.
Paragraph Five - Conclusion - Restate the thesis and the key points of the essay in different words.
As this is a process analysis paper, please stay in third person. (Do not use I, my, me, myself, you, your, and we).
The essay should be typed.
