What is inclued in each paragraph??

Complete your first paragraph. Your first paragraph should have a thesis statement that tells what the topic of your essay is. Your position on the topic should also be clearly written as well as the three reasons you picked from your brainstorming exercise. Don't explain your reasons; that will come later in the paper.
Use paragraphs two, three, and four to explain your three reasons. Remember, you are writing to convince. Personal experiences and details do wonders to demonstrate your point of view. For example, you could say, "So-and-so went for a job interview wearing tight low cut jeans and a short shirt that showed her pierced belly button. She was stared at throughout the entire interview and when she walked out, she knew that she didn't stand a chance for the job. Too bad she wasn't taught how to dress professionally in school".

Use your last paragraph to restate your thesis statement and your reasons, but you don't want to sound like you are restating yourself. Change the words. Finish your paragraph with a great closing line: "Now that you know the facts, don't dress codes sound like a great idea?" The key is to be creative, don't repeat yourself, and write to convince and you can write a knockout paper.
