Once the introduction is complete, the next section is the meat of the essay. The body of the essay is where you prove your claim. This section should be several paragraphs in length and each paragraph should have a specific focus, but that focus should have a meaningful connection to the claim. You should always include sources that can support your claim and include the citation to that source. The end of each paragraph should help validate your claim. Learning how to cite your sources is a valuable skill to learn, too. The major you choose will determine the type of citations that you need to use and you will need to use that citation style on every essay.
Conclude with Calls to Action
The last section that you need to know how to write is the conclusion. This section should include a call to action or final questions that will help the reader better understand what you are trying to prove. You should restate your main points and your claim, but use different words that you did in the introduction.
