Writing a College Paper

Middle Paragraphs

The middle paragraphs are the body of your paper.  This is where you show off all the research you have done on your topic.  You need to support your thesis statement by writing several paragraphs or pages on why your thesis statement is true.  After you have made your argument you need to show the other side of the argument and give reasons why that is a position to take but ultimately write why the reader should follow your argument and not the opposition.
