Think PEEL for a clear structure!

Point - State the main argument of your paragraph in the first sentence of your paragraph. 

Evidence - Provide some evidence that this is true - a fact or statistic.

Explain - Analyse how this piece of evidence is relevant to the argument to previously made, why and how it demonstrates that your argument is true.

Link  - Link the argument of the paragraph back to the main title of the essay, show why this mini-argument you have made is relevant to the overall question.
