    The basic idea of a paragraph is that it deals with a single idea or part of a story.

    Some people say there are three types:
    Types of paragraphs


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There are three different types of paragraphs. The position of the topic sentence determines which type of paragraph each one is.

    In a loose paragraph, the topic sentence comes at the beginning of the paragraph. This is the most common type of paragraph. The writer states the main point, then goes on to give examples and elaborate his or her point of view.

    In a mixed paragraph, the topic sentence appears in the middle of the paragraph. The writer builds up to the main point, then gives one or two further examples to expand on it.

    In a periodic paragraph, the topic sentence comes right at the end of the paragraph. This is after the writer has discussed and given examples leading up to making the main point. This point is much more easily understood after the examples and explanation. This type of paragraph is also useful to create suspense in your writing, because you keep the reader waiting to find out what is happening.


    Knowing when to use each type of paragraph will greatly enhance your own writing skills. A loose paragraph will often work well as your introduction. When you want to keep your reader in suspense, save the topic sentence to the end! Click on the next unit to find out about the structure of paragraphs and how to sequence them correctly.
