You need to think about the organization of your paragraphs. What topic should be first? Why? Should it go in chronological order or order of importance? These are questions you need to consider as you write your paper! Your reader will appreciate it!

You are introducing your reader to this brand new thing (thought), so you need to explain it to them. What is being said in the quote/example? Why is this quote/example significant? What does it show? How does it show it?

TRANSITION Again, picture you are the tour guide to your paper. You are briefly reviewing what your patrons just saw and informing them of whats to come! Try not to steal from your topic sentence! Use transitional phrases (Therefore, etc.) however, conversely, nonetheless
