An essay has a particular structure, and each paragraph in an essay has its own structure as well:
When writing an essay, you need to make sure that each of your paragraphs has these three elements. You also need to make sure that all of your supporting details fit together, and that they all support your topic sentence.
Your paragraphs also need to link together, even though they deal with different topics. Transitions help you create unified paragraphs that relate to each other effectively.
