What is the best way to write an essay paragraph?

The most effective method for writing essay paragraphs is to follow a '6 point paragraph' structure. This type of paragraph will allow you to hit all of hte assessment objectives that the examiners are looking for. For example, we would start with a strong topic sentence that outlines the point you are going to make, then we would provide evidence in the form of a quote, next you would analyse the quote (e.g. the language, syntax or structure). After this, you would give some contextual information (this could be historical or in the form of a critical quote), next you need to interpret this (e.g. take a critical viewpoint or explain your own interpretation of the point you are tyring to make) and finally conclude the paragraph with a sentence that links your argument to the authorial purpose (e.g. why has the author included this element in their work and what does it achieve?)
