The Basics of Effective Essay Writing

by JenJHopper
As you advance in school, you will have to write an essay. And the farther you are in school, the more complex and demanding the essay. It is important that you quickly learn how to write effective essays that communicate clearly and meet specific objectives.

An essay is a written composition where you express a specific idea and then support it with facts, statements, analysis, and explanation. The basic format for an essay is known as a five-paragraph essay - but an essay can have as many paragraphs as needed. A five-paragraph essay consists of five paragraphs. However, the essay consists of three sections: an introduction, a body and a conclusion. When you first start writing an essay in school, it is not uncommon for you to be assigned a topic. However, as you progress to grade level, you will be given the opportunity to choose the topic of your essays. When choosing a topic for your essay, you will want to make sure that your topic supports the type of paper you are expected to write on. If you are expected to produce a paper that is a general observation, then a general topic will suffice. However, if you are expected to write a specific analysis, then your subject should be quite specific.

For example, suppose the purpose of your essay is to write an overview with the help of essay writers . Then the theme "Russia" would be appropriate. However, if the objective or your essay is to write a specific analysis, "Russia" would be much more general than a subject. You have to narrow your subject like "Russian Politics: Past, Present and Future" or "Racial Diversity in the Former USSR". If you are expected to choose your subject, the first step is to define it. Purpose of your essay. Is your purpose persuaded? To explain how to complete something? Or for education about a person, place, thing or idea? The topic you choose needs to support the purpose of your essay.

Once you define the purpose of your essay, it is time to brainstorm. Do not select just one subject with the bat. Take some time to consider your options, do the opposite, and weigh. Take out a piece of paper and list all the different topics that fit the purpose of your essay. Once they are all down on paper, start eliminating topics that are not as difficult or relevant as other topics. Also, get rid of topics that are very challenging or in which you are not just for that interest. Very soon you have dropped your list down to a few topics and then you can make a final choice.
