Example of a Paragraph in the 5-Paragraph Model

  1. The 5-Paragraph Model of the essay contains all the correct elements and in the correct order.
  2. An opening paragraph delivers the clear and simple thesis, and a closing paragraph enlightening summarises the essay’s development of the thesis without adding any new material.
  3. And in the middle, three development paragraphs successively prove the thesis: each using fact or reason to take the reader sentence-by-sentence from ignorance to knowledge.
  4. Furthermore, this 5-Paragraph model of the essay is also the macrocosm of each individual paragraph, which means that each paragraph-microcosm has the same five elements and in the same order (the first element is called the topic sentence; the last element is the call the linking sentence, while the middle three sentence are still called ‘development’.)
  5. So, we can summarise by saying that the 5-Paragraph Model succeeds in every non-fiction writing situation.
