  • 1. The Essay The Simple Guide To More Complex Writing http://essayacademia.com/
  • 2. What is an essay?
    • An essay is a group of paragraphs that are written in response to a given topic.
    • The number of paragraphs varies, but a standard essay usually contains five.

  • 3. How do we begin?
    • We begin by getting a writing topic.
    • For example:
    • “What is your favorite holiday?”

  • 4. Example
    • Now that we know what our topic is we can begin our planning stage.
    • Believe it or not, this stage is where you’ll spend most of your time, not the writing stage.

  • 5. Thinking Maps
    • The first thing we need for planning is this nice donut shaped circle.

  • 6.
    • Inside
    • The small
    • Circle, we
    • Write our
    • Topic: In this case I have chosen Christmas as my favorite Holiday
    Christmas is my favorite Holiday http://essayacademia.com/
  • 7. Inside the large circle:
    • Let’s say that inside the large circle we wrote down the following ideas:
    • Santa, carols, decorations, snow, presents, trees, lights, wreaths, family, friends, cards.
    • We have a great list here. But we’re not going to use everything on it.

  • 8.
    • Even though all the ideas are great, we want to choose just three to write about.
    • We’ll save the others just in case we have trouble with one of our choices. We’ll have great ideas to fall back on.
    • Remember, this is the planning stage, we can make lots of changes here.

  • 9. Our choices:
    • Santa
    • Family
    • Decorations
    • Now we have it narrowed down to three. Let’s figure out what order we’re going to put them in.

  • 10. The order:
    • 1. Santa
    • 2. Decorations
    • 3. Family
    • I’ve chosen to write about them in this order. Your order may be different. Any order you choose is fine.

  • 11. The next step:
    • The flow chart:
    • ____ ____ ____
    • ____ ____ ____
    • ____ ____ ____
    http://essayacademia.com/
  • 12. Using the flow chart
    • We put our choices in the boxes, in the order we chose them. The lines under the boxes are for adding details.
    • Each detail will help support the idea listed in the box.

  • 13.
    • Believe it or not, we actually have the body of our essay figured out.
    • Now that we know what are body paragraphs are about, we can safely begin writing our opening paragraph.

  • 14.
    • Now that really wasn’t so hard was it?
    • Lets recap:
    • Opening paragraph = 4 sentences
    • 1 st body paragraph = 4 sentences
    • 2 nd body paragraph = 4 sentences
    • 3 rd body paragraph = 4 sentences
    • Closing paragraph = 4 sentences
