The Paragraph vs. the Essay

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 1:56 PM
Hello, writers,
You will understand the structure of the essay better if you first review the structure of the hamburger paragraph. The following documents will help:
Paragraph - Essay (PDF — 85 KB)
Try the following: Compose a hamburger paragraph about the biggest change you experienced in 2011. Include three supporting ideas and add an elaborate detail for each of your ideas. 
Now grow your paragraph into a 5-paragraph essay by writing about three changes you experienced in 2011. You should end up with:
1- An introductory paragraph with a hook or lead plus a thesis statement that lists the three changes you will discuss in the essay.
2- Three body paragraphs, each presenting and explaining one change.
3- A concluding paragraph with a restatement of the thesis statement and a final thought or reflection.
Next time we will examine exemplars of both of these.
Talk to you soon,
Write Cook
P.S. What is your favorite hearty, home-made soup to eat on a cold winter's day? I have several favorites: lentil soup, split-pea soup, rice with chicken soup, and tuber vegetable soup. Would you care to share a family recipe?
