Originally Answered: How long is the average paragraph?
Actually, there is no desired length for a paragraph. A paragraph can not be bound by number of lines. A paragraph is one idea, and once that idea has concluded, the next paragraph may be started. However, teachers from middle school and beyond state that 4 to 5 paragraphs is the recommended guideline. But if you essays seem to short, consider adding a small conclusion to each paragraph. This answer, as a matter of fact, is a complete paragraph, not because the amount of lines I used, but because it is a complete thought. Good luck!
