Academic Paragraph Template

1. Topic sentence(s): draft a topic sentence or two that responds to the assignment prompt: According to one or more of the authors we have read so far this semester (Bullard, Glave, Finney, and Washington), what is the relationship between racism and environmental degradation?
2. Transition: write 2-3 couple sentences that develop your topic sentence and also set up (announce, contextualize) the citation you will include from the essay you are analyzing.
3. Citation: choose a couple of sentences from Bullard, Glave, Finney, and Washington’s articles and then cite those sentences in your paragraph.
4. Close Analysis: write 2-4 sentence “close read”/analyze the citation you included from Bullard, Glave, Finney, and Washington’s articles. What’s the main idea of the passage you cited & how do you know? That is, what phrases, rhetorical appeals (ethos, pathos, logos), metaphors, or structure in the passage suggests to you what you say the passage means?
5. Conclusion:write 2-3 sentences that tie your analysis back into the larger goal of the paragraph. Now that you have responded to the question with your claim and developed you claim through an analysis of a passage from Bullard, Glave, Finney, and Washington’s articles, you need to write 2-3 more sentences that put the pieces together for your reader.
