Although there can be some variation in the way a good paragraph is structured, they all follow the same basic form
1) A paragraph starts with a clear topic sentence that tells the reader what the paragraph will be about.
2) The next 2 or 3, or sometimes more, sentences contain evidence that supports or provides  information about the topic sentence.
3) A paragraph ends with a concluding sentence that summarizes the ideas discussed in the paragraph while transitioning into the next paragraph.
