What is a SEEAC Paragraph?
SEEAC is an acronym that will help you remember all the different parts of a paragraph and how to combine them so that your paragraph doesn't read like a bunch of separate, choppy sentences that aren't all that connected to each other.
The topic sentence that clearly states the main idea of your paragraph. (Also called the introductory sentence).
The main points that support your topic sentence. Try to have 2-3 of them. (Also called supporting points).
This is the evidence that helps illustrate your main points. Support each main point with 2-3 of them.
These are explanations that make connections between your examples, main points and topic sentence.
The last sentence that summarizes everything and shows that you proved the point in your topic sentence.
The following paragraph is an example of a SEEAC paragraph. You can see numbers clearly marking the two main points that are being developed in the paragraph. It is also colour coded (see the SEEAC chart above) so you can see how the different parts of the SEEAC paragraph come together.
