I want to do this! What's This?
An English essay is a written piece that presents an author's perspective or opinion on an issue or idea. An essay requires a thesis statement, a single statement that presents an opinion on the main subject of the essay. Before writing an essay, it's best to develop an outline of ideas and brainstorm the evidence you can provide to support your thesis. This will be an invaluable guide as you write your essay.
Difficulty: Moderately Challenging
  1. 1
Write an introductory paragraph. The introductory paragraph should propose the thesis of the essay (an argument, topic or issue) and provide an outline of how the essay will support the thesis. An introductory paragraph can also provide general background information on the subject being covered.
  2. 2
Proceed to the first body paragraph. This paragraph should address your first main point, as it relates to your thesis statement. Include evidence and examples to support this point.
  3. 3
Write the second body paragraph. This paragraph will address an additional point as it relates to the main thesis statement and provide evidence and/or examples.
  4. 4
Continue writing additional body paragraphs, according to the desired length of your essay. Ensure that each paragraph relates to the thesis statement and that claims made are substantiated by evidence.
  5. 5
Finish the essay with a concluding paragraph. In this paragraph you will wrap up the main points you presented in your body paragraphs and again state how these main points support your thesis statement.
