We all know what a paragraph is, right? RIGHT?! No?
Oh boy, let me refresh your memory.
Paragraphs are the building blocks of your paper. Sort of like how amino acids are the building blocks of life. Or something. I don’t know. Anyways, paragraphs.
The Indiana University Writing Tutorial Services explains paragraphs best:
A paragraph is a series of sentences that are organized and coherent, and are all related to a single topic. Almost every piece of writing you do that is longer than a few sentences should be organized into paragraphs. This is because paragraphs show a reader where the subdivisions of an essay begin and end, and thus help the reader see the organization of the essay and grasp its main points. (Yes, I am aware this should not be a block quote!)
