How To Write A 2 Paragraph Essay
The first sentence of this paragraph should include the reverse hook which ties in with the transitional hook at the end of the second paragraph.The last sentence in this paragraph should include a transitional concluding hook that signals the reader that this is the final major point being made in this paper.The last sentence of the paragraph uses the words "manipulation" and "senses" as transitional hooks.In "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe uses the following image to describe a static scene: "His room was as black as pitch with the thick darkness . ." Poe used the words "black," "pitch," and "thick darkness" not only to show the reader the condition of the old man's room, but also to make the reader feel the darkness." In the first sentence of the second paragraph (first paragraph of the body) the words "sense" and "manipulation" are used to hook into the end of the introductory paragraph.One is not required to produce a perfectly formatted five-paragraph essay every time one composes a piece of writing.There is another type of essay you can write that may just be simpler than the traditional style: the three-paragraph essay.
The first paragraph of the body should contain the strongest argument, most significant example, cleverest illustration, or an obvious beginning point.Note that in the second paragraph "feeling" came first, and in this paragraph "sight" comes first.The first sentence also includes the topic for this paragraph--imagery in a dynamic scene.The last sentence in this paragraph should include a transitional hook to tie into the third paragraph of the body.The third paragraph of the body should contain the weakest argument, weakest example, weakest illustration, or an obvious follow up to the second paragraph in the body.The second sentence leads up to the thesis statement which is the third sentence.The thesis statement (sentence 3) presents topic of the paper to the reader and provides a mini- outline. The mini- outline tells the reader that this paper will present Poe's use of imagery in three places in his writing: (1) description of static setting; (2) description of dynamic setting; and (3) description of a person.Poe's short story "The Tell-Tale Heart" is a story about a young man who kills an old man who cares for him, dismembers the corpse, then goes mad when he thinks he hears the old man's heart beating beneath the floor boards under his feet as he sits and discusses the old man's absence with the police.The introductory paragraph includes a paraphrase of something said by a famous person in order to get the reader's attention.A classic format for compositions is the five-paragraph essay.It is not the only format for writing an essay, of course, but it is a useful model for you to keep in mind, especially as you begin to develop your composition skills.
