1) The Author, title, kind of work, a brief summary of the plot and the whole theme of the story.

2) These paragraphs are the supporting paragraphs to provide evidence as well as pulls the essay together.

3) The general topic should be broken down into three main ideas, that way you have your three body paragraphs

4) You should conclude the arguement suggesting its larger significance for a general understanding.

5) They should be arranged from general to specific, that way you get the point across more clearly.
