Question Throughout your program at Grace you will be writing a variety of different types of papers. It is important to understand the basics of putting a paper together. All papers have a few components no matter how long they are. These include an introduction, the body, and the conclusion. A good way to understand this structure is to write a short five-paragraph paper. The introduction needs to include a hook, the set-up, and the thesis statement. Many students taking this course have completed writing courses earlier in their programs. While some of this course may be a refresher, many areas go more in-depth and will address other areas to help continue to improve your writing.
