What is a Good Paragraph?  How do you Teach Students to Write a Good Paragraph?

A paragraph is an organized group of quality sentences that contain "one" main idea, theme, setting. topic, subject and or message. Big topics and ideas are divided into individual paragraphs to help the reader transition from one theme or idea to a new theme or idea.  A paragraph contains "one" theme or "one" main idea.  Paragraphs use supporting "body" sentences to expand, explain and or give examples of the main idea or theme in alternate, cyclical or secondary ways. The main idea of the paragraph is often called the theme. The last sentence in a paragraph summarizes the theme or main idea or transitions and introduces the next paragraphs theme or idea.
