    • Each paragraph of your essay should have four elements in every paragraph.  The first is the statement; this is the main point of the paragraph that you are about to write.  The next is the explanation of the statement; give them the explanation on how it is true.  Then you want to give examples that will help support the evidence of the main point.  The last sentence should tell the importance of this point and then lead them into the next paragraph with a transition.
    • You essay should have a plan, this means making an outline using the structure of your essay that I gave you in the first rule and using the paragraph break down for the content of the essay.

    • And lastly, you can practice doing essays.  You might not want to do this but practicing how to write essays will help you write the ones that you are assigned by your teacher.  Just pick a topic and use the rules on here and write an essay for practice.  Doing this will make writing essays that are graded easier and faster.
