This section outlines the overall structure of an essay comprising an introduction, body and conclusion. It also explains how to structure an effective paragraph using the TEEL strategy.

Note: While the topic and linking sentences are fixed at the beginning and end of the paragraphs, explain, evidence and example are interchangeable. For more information on how to use TEEL, visit the Paragraphs page on the Learning Lab.
