A major support is 1 of the main points of your body paragraph. For example:

Topic Sentence: Solar powered batteries are one of the first things I would bring with me onto my island.

1. They are rechargeable from a renewable source

2. A lot of portable things require batteries

3. Don’t need to bring many

minor supports
Minor Supports

Minor supports, in this essay, answer the “why” of your major supports.

  • They are rechargeable from a renewable source
    • A deserted island is not likely to have an electronic power source
    • The sun is something I will have constant access to.

2. A lot of portable things require batteries

    • Flash lights, a main source of light at night requires batteries
    • Hand-radios require battery power.

3. Don’t need to bring many

    • Lighter weight in travel.
    • Fewer things could get lost on the island.
