You need to change paragraphs when you change:
__Consider your paragraph to be a hamburger. __
The topic sentence is what the paragraph will be about.
The contents of the burger contain more information.
It is important to conclude your paragraph with a final sentence.
You can use the following words to help connect your sentences:
|also||as well as||moreover||too||Cause and effect|
|Sequencing||next||then||first, second, third…||finally||meanwhile||after||Qualifying||however||although||unless||except||if||as long as||apart from||yet|
|such as||for instance||as revealed by||in the case of|
|Comparing||equally||in the same way||similarly||likewise||as with||like||Contrasting||whereas||instead of||alternatively||otherwise||unlike||on the other hand|
When you end your writing, it needs to be an exciting/shocking/mysterious conclusion. This is because you need to be entertaining your reader all the way through the piece.
Look at these two. Which one leaves you with more questions?

Grabbing the gun, we struggled and the bullet went into his chest, piercing his evil heart.
You can do two things at once with a short, yet effective ending.
A) Still be entertaining
B)Show you are using a paragraph to effect the reader
__Use a one line paragraph to conclude your work. __
A one line paragraph will stand out, so it makes sense to use it for a dramatic/mysterious ending.

- What does ‘TIPTOP’ stand for?
- How do you link a sentence?
