What constitutes effective essay writing? Of course, it is a difficult question to answer. A review of many English college essays indicates that most essay writers have poor understand of good essay paragraphs.

Consider the following qualities of good essay writing:

  • Completeness and essay paragraph coherence.
  • Conciseness and concreteness.
  • Clarity and consideration.
  • Mechanics and organization of the essay paragraphs.

There are two common conventions of essay paragraph writing form. The first convention is based on the initial topicalization. It requires the first sentence of the paragraph to state the topic. The second convention, coherence, requires each subsequent sentence to be connected with ideas presented in the paragraph. The practice shows that paragraphs that violate the topicalization and coherence conventions produce longer reading times as well as poorer recall, and distortion of apparent topic.
