  1. You can use a parallel structure format. You state an attention getter, then introuduce what you're talking about, then a thesis statement. Then the next paragraph start with a topic sentence the write a body paragraph describing the topic sentence. then the last paragraph re-state your thesis then conclude.

  2. Also to make your sentences flow use transistions. Like, first, second, lastly, also, because , however, therefore, and so on...

  3. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Good advice from Miley! A standard paragraph has 5 sentences: first one introducing the topic (and could be the thesis statement, although it is not mandatory that it be at the beginning.) second, third, fourth sentences are making your point; your "proof" for example. fifth and final sentence is your summation. Here the simpliest format:

    1. what I'm writing about
    2. one thing I have to say about it
    3. another thing I have to say about it.
    4. third thing I have to say about it.
    5. what I've written about!
