Modules: Academic Paragraphing Modules


Welcome to the Writing Center’s self-paced modules about academic paragraphs. These modules will help you develop strong paragraphs in your writing, helping you clearly present your ideas.

We are continuing to develop our academic paragraphing modules, so check back soon for additional modules.

Introduction to Paragraph Development

In this module you will learn how to develop academic paragraphs. This includes learning how to identify and incorporate topic sentences into your paragraphs, how to develop and stay focused on one main idea in your paragraphs, and how to conclude your paragraphs.

This module is a good fit for you if you are new to academic writing, are unsure about how to develop your paragraphs, or have been told you need to revise your paragraph structure.

I’m ready to start learning!
