Five Paragraph Essay

When practicing essay writing for the GED Writing Test, you should use the 5-paragraph essay.

See below for a quick look at each paragraph:

First Paragraph- Introduction (The first paragraph is an opportunity for the writer to introduce the topic of the essay and three supporting reasons.)

Second-Fourth Paragraph- Body of the Essay (Each one of the three paragraphs should include one supporting reasons.)

Fifth- Paragraph- Conclusion (The fifth paragraph is the concluding paragraph where the writer will summarize what they had written.)
