How to Write a Good Paragraph ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

[Music]

look at these two paragraphs can you

tell which one is a good paragraph and

which one is not

yes the first one is a good paragraph

how do you know it's a good paragraph

because it focuses on a single topic

which is my mother the second paragraph

talks about many different things in

fact each sentence in the second

paragraph talks about a different topic

which is really a bad idea so a good

paragraph focuses on a single topic or

idea remember that today we shall learn

about three very important components of

a paragraph topic sentence supporting

sentences adding details look at this

simple paragraph read it aloud now look

again at the first sentence it says

trees are useful to us this is called

the topic sentence of the paragraph the

rest of the sentences in the paragraph

must support or agree with this topic

sentence now look at the other sentences

in the paragraph do they support the

topic sentence did they tell us how the

trees are useful to us yes indeed they

support the topic sentence trees are

useful to us so this is a good paragraph

indeed it has a topic sentence and the

rest of the sentences in the paragraph

support the topic sentence this sentence

says a dog is a useful animal all the

other sentences must support or prove

how a dog is a useful animal let's see

it guards our house does this sentence

prove that a dog is a useful animal yes

it protects us from burglars

does this sentence support that the dog

is a useful animal yes of course it

plays with us and

entertains us does it support that a dog

is a useful animal yes of course again

it keeps us safe and makes our life easy

this sentence to supports the topic

sentence so a good paragraph must have a

topic sentence that controls the other

sentences now here is a little exercise

for you look at this paragraph the topic

sentence is missing can you put in the

topic sentence in this paragraph well

here are two options for you choose one

you are right the correct option is mrs.

Lama is a very busy person as you have

seen the main sentence of a paragraph

which is usually the first sentence is

called the topic sentence the rest of

the sentences in the paragraph are

called supporting sentences this support

the topic sentence have a look at this

paragraph now it's about pokhara what is

the topic sentence

Pokhara is an amazing place to visit the

rest of the sentences which are the

supporting sentences must support why or

how Pokhara is an amazing place to visit

in this paragraph there are three

supporting sentences let's look at each

of them first it is a place known for

his cynic beauty also mokra offers a

range of adventure activities for the

visitors in addition you get to visit

exotic places within the city as you can

see all of these three supporting

sentences support the topic sentence

Pokhara is an amazing place to visit now

let

the next item adding details often you

need to add details to your supporting

sentences adding details makes the

paragraph stronger let's see how we can

add details to our paragraph about

pokhara look each of the supporting

sentences has a detail now does the

paragraph look better yes indeed so it's

important to add details to the

supporting sentences you can give

examples and further information when

you add details for example let's look

at the first supporting sentence it

talks about scenic beauty in the detail

section examples of scenic beauty are

given for example clear views of

snow-capped mountains like Annapurna and

Ola Guri and the scenic reflection of

matcha Putra peak on the waters of

favored lake are mentioned
