    • There are five main steps:
    • Step 1: Read the essay
    • Step 2: Underline
    • Step 3: Get Ideas
    • Step 4: Decide Layout
    • Step 5: Write
  • 10.
    • Step 1: Read the essay
    • Read the question. Decide what kind of essay it is - opinion, compare/contrast, problem and solution, cause and effect, or a mixture. The type of question will decide the layout and your ideas.
  • 11.
    • Step 2: Underline
    • Underline key vocabulary in the question and write words with the same or related meaning. This will really save you a lot of time later on. It will also help to avoid repetition of words, and will show that you understand the question.
  • 12.
    • Step 3: Get Ideas
    • Decide if you are for or against the idea. Usually it is best to give both sides (for and against - one paragraph each) and then to give your opinion in the conclusion. However there are other ways of laying out your essay.
  • 13.
    • Step 4: Decide Layout
    • You should decide on a layout. The easiest is 3773 . That means four paragraphs: introduction ( 3 sentences) one side ( 7 sentences), the other side ( 7 sentences) and the conclusion ( 3 sentences). This will give you 20 sentences. An average of about 12 words each, that is 240 words. Perfect!
