February 28, 2014 - Leave a Comment


A well-planned process must be required to write a successful essay. An essay is basically a short composition on a particular theme or subject matter. A five-paragraph essay is usually presented with a thesis statement, includes facts and arguments that support the thesis statement, and includes a summary or conclusion based upon the facts and data made in the essay. Essays can employ several different methods of defining an argument, like a comparison and contrast, providing a process, or simply create a simple presentation of facts and statistics. In this blog, I explained some easy steps of writing a college essay assignment.

Creating a Thesis Statement

A thesis statement is an observation you write at the starting of the paper. Generally, a thesis statement is a part of introduction that gives a summary of the topic. The thesis statement is the main point of the essay; you should write a concise sentence that perfectly sets the tone for the rest of the paper. A predictive thesis statement allows you to create a basic outline for the arguments to follow, giving the readers a preview of the topics you plan to discuss the arguments you will make.

Focus on the Introduction Section

A perfect introduction must attract the reader’s attention and serve as a motivation to read the entire paper. An introduction usually contains some setup information like why the thesis statement was made or how the thesis statement pertains to the audience. It must be set up the rest of the paper, while making it easier for the readers to understand the important information.

Explain Your Subject Matter Clearly

Each paragraph must contain major information that supports your arguments except for the introduction and conclusion. Additional details can also be used to explain the points made by the major information.

Present Your Conclusion Well

The conclusion of an essay is an opportunity to give a logical explanation based upon the arguments explained. The conclusion may be presented in a number of ways, such as presenting a summary of the facts followed by the logical explanation based upon the details presented. Another way to conclude a paper is to write a summary followed by an impressive thought, quote or a call to action. You must restate the original thesis statement made in the introduction. Make sure to follow all the above points to make your essay outstanding.
