Excerpt from Lesson:

In a standard five paragraph essay there are three BODY PARAGRAPHS. Each paragraph highlights a different point in your paper or essay. While the INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH introduces the topic at hand, the BODY PARAGRAPHS actually hold the information about the topic. If the INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH is the salad before dinner, the BODY PARAGRAPH is main course.
Here is where you will use the I-FREE-C outline format—with a twist!! OH NO! You've mastered the paragraph and now there's a twist?! Don't worry, you will still use the format but we need to add what is called a TRANSITIONAL SENTENCE to the first and second BODY PARAGRAPHS.

A TRANSITIONAL SENTENCE does exactly what it says—it transitions, or flows, the idea of one paragraph to the idea of another. For example, if your essay is about your favorite book, your first BODY PARAGRAPH may discuss the main reason why it is your favorite book, the second BODY PARAGRAPH will discuss another reason why you like it and so on with the third BODY PARAGRAPH.
