The following are some terms for the elements of this process that you may use; or you may choose your own synonyms for them.
A classic format for compositions is the five-paragraph essay.
The introductory paragraph should also include the thesis statement, a kind of mini-outline for the paper: it tells the reader what the essay is about.
The last sentence of this paragraph must also contain a transitional "hook" which moves the reader to the first paragraph of the body of the paper.
The last sentence in this paragraph should include a transitional concluding hook that signals the reader that this is the final major point being made in this paper.

This hook also leads into the last, or concluding, paragraph.The last sentence uses the words "one blind eye" which was in the quotation. (It is less important that this paragraph has a hook since the last paragraph is going to include a summary of the body of the paper.) The first sentence of the concluding paragraph uses the principal words from the quotations from each paragraph of the body of the paper. The second and third sentences provide observations which can also be considered a summary, not only of the content of the paper, but also offers personal opinion which was logically drawn as the result of this study.This expression provides the transitional hook for the last paragraph in the body of the paper. The last sentence returns to the Edgar Allan Poe-Stephen King relationship which began this paper.In "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe uses the following image to describe a static scene: "His room was as black as pitch with the thick darkness . ." Poe used the words "black," "pitch," and "thick darkness" not only to show the reader the condition of the old man's room, but also to make the reader feel the darkness." In the first sentence of the second paragraph (first paragraph of the body) the words "sense" and "manipulation" are used to hook into the end of the introductory paragraph.The first part of the second sentence provides the topic for this paragraph--imagery in a static scene.Then a quotation from "The Tell-Tale Heart" is presented and briefly discussed.The last sentence of this paragraph uses the expressions "sense of feeling" and "sense of sight" as hooks for leading into the third paragraph.The thesis statement (sentence 3) presents topic of the paper to the reader and provides a mini- outline. The mini- outline tells the reader that this paper will present Poe's use of imagery in three places in his writing: (1) description of static setting; (2) description of dynamic setting; and (3) description of a person.The last sentence of the paragraph uses the words "manipulation" and "senses" as transitional hooks.The first sentence of this paragraph should include the reverse hook which ties in with the transitional hook at the end of the first paragraph of the body.The last sentence in this paragraph should include a transitional hook to tie into the third paragraph of the body.
