A 5-paragraph essay is an excellent formulaic strategy for students to use when writing a long expository composition for class or for standardized tests. Planning worksheets usually have an introductory paragraph with a place for a thesis statement, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
One of the best strategies for teaching students how to form an essay on a topic is to have them use the 5-paragraph essay, or long composition, structure. This method asks students to pick out three solid, relevant pieces of information, and to buttress that information with a solid introductory paragraph and a concluding paragraph. The 5-paragraph essay is also a good choice for any student writing an essay for the SAT/ACT.
