Body of the Text
The purpose of the body of the text is to prove your thesis statement or achieve acceptance that the point you are making is valid. You can do this in many ways. If you have written an outline as described in How to Write an Outline above, you should be well on your way. Using the subpoints you have identified, they may be proven or established in the same way as for the subpoints. Prove how or why this point must be accepted. Also, examples are very useful in establishing points in an interesting and readable way.
See Sample 1, subpoint 1 above: Climate warming is melting the ice caps and eventually the seas will flood the earth. Cite statistics and give examples of ice caps melting for this portion of the body of your essay.
