Body paragraphs
Opinion or agree/disagree essay – You can make a totally one sided essay by agreeing or disagreeing or you can partially agree and write both sides of the topic. You can also put both sides of the issue by completely agreeing or disagreeing but the way of presenting the opponents viewpoint is important. You must again reiterate your opinion after acknowledging the opponents view.
For/against or discuss essay – In this essay your opinion comes in the conclusion but you can write two body paragraphs on the view you agree with and one paragraph of the other view.
Problem / solution essay – Give 2 paragraphs of problems and one of solutions OR give one paragraph of problems and one of solutions OR give one paragraph of one problem and its solution, second paragraph of another problem with its solution and a third paragraph with the third problem and its solution.
