Lexical Links: Student Example

A strong use (a clear use) of lexical links in the 5-¶ Model, courtesy of Gurkaran Padam & Ben Moerman (Civil Engineering, 2014).

  1. The Five-Paragraph Model is a technology for clearly communicating ideas.
  2. The model begins with a clear statement of the main idea.
  3. Subsequent paragraphs develop and explain this idea; making it clearly understandable.
  4. Each paragraph ends with a linking sentence to provide a fluid reading experience.
  5. In summary, the Five-Paragraph Model clearly communicates your main idea: your thesis.
