A transition sentence is a sentence that helps link the points of each paragraph together by making a smooth transition from the previous paragraph.
It can be done in the first sentence of the new paragraph or the last sentence of the previous one.
The body section should consist of at least several paragraphs where you will provide support for your thesis statement in the form of reasons, evidence, arguments, justification, and so on.
That is, you have something you want to communicate or argue for (your thesis) and here is your chance to explain it in detail, support it, and defend it.
(Some instructors, like me, even think that summary sections are unnecessary for short papers.) It’s a good idea to put these sections titles in as headings in your paper to organize and break things up for yourself and your reader.
If your instructor doesn’t want headings in your paper, just take them out before you print it to turn it in.It is also helpful for long papers to put in additional headings, perhaps even sub-headings, to break up the body section (such as “First Argument,” “Second Argument,” and so on).Familiarize yourself with the material before you begin writing.Overall, the paper should demonstrate a command of the writing process and the author’s care in crafting it.Avoid errors of spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, verb tense, and vocabulary, such as the following: (author unkown) If you are doing an essay that involves researching or you quote anyone in your essay, then you need to cite your sources.You can even try talking about it to a friend or family member. For most people, writing their rough ideas down as rough drafts helps them see their ideas more clearly than even thinking about them.Then take a break from the essay (this usually requires at least a half, if not full, day).Another option is to have a transition sentence first and then a separate topic sentence following it.The summary section (often misleadingly called a “conclusion”) is a short recap of what you have said in the essay.Note that the first sentence of the paragraph may satisfy both goals.That is, you may have a topic sentence that also serves to transition well.
