Using the MEALs Paragraph development
The MEAL plan is a way to organize your paragraphs as you write; it helps writers create strong, thorough paragraphs. The letters, “M-E-A-L,” form an acronym that stands for the following:
MMain idea: This is usually expressed in a strong topic sentence.See tips on using a strong topic sentence.
EEvidence: Once your readers are clear what the main topic of your paragraph is, you can use source material as evidence to discuss your topic and promote your academic argument. The word “evidence” is another way to say source citations.See tips on how to best use evidence.
AAnalysis: After giving the evidence, youll want to explain, incorporate, and integrate that evidence by providing some analysis. Analysis is where you can compare, contrast, and provide explanations for the source material, why it is important, and how it relates to your main idea.
LLead out: The lead-out sentence or sentences are where you will sum up what the paragraph discussed and then preview what is coming in the next paragraph so that the reader can smoothly move from one idea to the next.See some other tips on transitional words and phrases.
