The Hamburger Paragraph
(a
four-patty 
example)Writing a hamburger paragraph is pretty easy,and there are onlyfour thingsyou really need toremember.First, write a topic sentence that clearlyindicates what the
whole
paragraph is going to beabout. This is the top bun of the burger.Second,compose several sentences that give information aboutthe topic. These are the real meat of the thing
themost important part of a burger.Third, pair each pattywith another sentence that gives more detail about theinformation. This keeps your paragraph from soundinglike a list.Finally, write a sentence in which you restatethe top bun in another way. I call this the bottom burgerbun.As you can see, writing a hamburger paragraphis very simple to do.
