Step – By – Step Tutorial

Before you even start to write you need to figure out what your going to write about, pick a topic and decide what the purpose is for the essay.  Then you want to write you thesis statement and start your research.

Once you are done with all of that, create a title for your essay.  You want to have a title that is strong and include verbs.  Remember this can change or you can wait till your done write your title.  You can also adjust your thesis here if you found better information while doing research.

Compose your introduction; this has to have your main idea and thesis statement in it.  You want to use this to get the reader’s attention.  If you don’t do this, they won’t want to read your essay.

Next you will write the body of your essay, which is usually two to three paragraphs that give support to your topic.  They are there to tell the reader why your topic and thesis are valid.  These need to have strong evidence and facts in them.  This is where all the research you did comes in, in this section.  Each paragraph should focus on one main idea and have support to support the idea and the topic.  If you fail do this then your essay won’t read well.

The conclusion of your essay has to connect to the introduction of your essay.  You can do this by answering questions that were in the introduction or start and finish a story in them.  But is should summarize all of the information that you just went over in your essay.   This will remind the reader of what they just read and reinforce the ideas that you were trying to get across.  You also should write and updated thesis in your conclusion.  It should be like the thesis in the introduction but answered in the conclusion.  Use the conclusion to wrap up loose ends and tell the reader anything else you think they should know about the topic.
