I am suppose to write a paragraph with details. Could you explain writing with details.

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. In a standard paragraph, there are usually 5 sentences. The first sentence states what you are going to write about. The last sentence summarizes is and the 3 in the middle need details to "proove your point" if that's what you are doing. Is it the word "details" that you don't understand? Use adjectives describing the noun, for example.

    To write a paragraph in detail is pretty easy. Just add description words and adjectives. It's better not to over do it and add five adjective per sentence- there should be a maximum of maybe two/three decribing things in a sentence. Try to vary the lengths of your sentences as well.

    I have heard that a paragraph is generally five to six sentences in length but can extend up to seven.
