Directions: Often, the hardest part of writing a body paragraph is the explanation, so I thought it would be good to give it one more practice.
As a reminder, the explanation is the last part of the body paragraph, and it is where you connect the Information (in your case a quote from an article) to your Point. In the explanation, you explain to the reader how the Information (quote) you provided proves your Point (the opinion of that paragraph).
Many writers struggle with the Explanation because it asks us to analyze the information we have given. To make sure we write good explanations, please review the lectures below.
