Each body paragraph needs to have three parts: a main topic (controlling idea), which derives from the thesis statement, but it is only a portion of it, an illustration, which is basically the arguments and counterarguments, with added data, that explain the controlling idea and start resolving the issue of the thesis statement, and finally, an explanation with a conclusion, that further eplains the controlling idea, ties lose ends and supports and connects the claim to the thesis statement.
