Grade 10- How to write a body paragraph for a commentary

So, you should all be familiar with the PEE format for body paragraphs. First, start off with a point. Next, use an example from the text. Finally, give an explanation showing the connection between your point and example. But to help you gain a better sense of what this actually looks like, I’ve provided an example in the link below. It uses different terminology such as thesis statement, concrete details, and commentary, but it is the same exact principle. The example is for the play, The Crucible, but the point is to use it as a format for your own commentary body paragraphs. If you use this format, you’ll greatly improve your essays in no time!
