    Having some serious trouble with this exam.
    Basically, I can't get above a low C, no matter how hard I try. I just can't seem to be able to structure a paragraph in the right way!
    My teacher is next to useless, she's leaving next year because so many people have complained about her - she literally just sets an essay for one period then tells us to leave - without ever actually helping with how to write said essay.
    I'm fine with the intro & conclusion, I'm just struggling with how to structure a paragraph?!!!!????
    i know to start each paragraph with a topic sentence, but that's about all the help I've ever received please help!

    Hiya The best way to structure a paragraph is to use the PEE structure - point, evidence, evaluation. So you make your point at the beginning of the paragraph, provide your evidence (usually in terms of a quote from the book) and then evaluate it in terms of your overall question. Also, always make sure that each point relates directly to the essay question. Here is a link to show how other students write essays Good luck, and let me know if you need anything else!
