In a five paragraph essay, you will have an introduction, three body paragraphs and a conclusion. At the end of the introduction, you will have a thesis statement that lists three elements of support for your point. Those three elements will be the topics of your three paragraphs. SOOOooo, if you're writing about the woman's journey to insanity and madness, you could start with how the main character is at the beginning of the story for point one. Then, you could transition into what point you believe starts her insanity in point two. Finally, you could discuss the end result in point three.
