1) Introduction – corresponds to the first paragraph of the text and is responsible for familiarizing the reader with the subject that will be discussed.

To achieve this goal, this part of textual production requires presentation of the topic

That will be discussed and should introduce the thesis (point of view) that will be defended.

2) Development – corresponds to the presentation of the facts and arguments that will sustain / defend the point of view. In this part of the text, we must argue, criticize, question, reflect and justify the thesis raised in the first paragraph. It is important to select well the arguments and the order in which they will appear. In addition, care must be taken with the length and number of arguments, since the maximum of 30 lines is available.

3) Conclusion – corresponds to the last paragraph to be elaborated and that is responsible for the closing of the ideas, starting from the resumption of the theme and the thesis. In addition, it is usually the moment when the intervention proposal is presented (solutions to the problem).

As you can see, the thesis is the main point of this type of text.

It is presented in the introduction, is argued in the argument (usually two arguments) and is taken up in conclusion. That is why it is essential that it be clear already in the opening paragraph and, to do this efficiently, always keep in mind the writing theme.

It is also worth mentioning that these three parts of the structure must be interconnected, as well as the ideas in each of the paragraphs, so it is important to have an excellent repertoire of cohesive resources, since they will give fluidity to the text and leave everything very well ‘tied’, since the text is a significant unit.
